Research affirms meaningful benefits for diversifying school leadership, including reducing stereotyping and unconscious biases and promoting greater acceptance and trust among students, improving interactions with community members that share their racial or ethnic background, and providing a nuanced perspective when developing academic programs targeting students of color. Yet, principal pipelines are not equally accessible for educators of color. Furthermore, as we go into the third year of the pandemic, school principals continue to feel the stress of staffing shortages and concerns about student wellness in their schools, leading to fears of principals leaving the field. What can states and districts do to recruit diverse school leaders, and how can we ensure our school leaders of color feel supported? Join us for a conversation around diversifying school leader pipelines and supports for principals of color.
