Workshops and Convenings

Our most important role is to provide organizational and staff development support for charter schools (focused on single-site) led by leaders of color. The most effective way for us to reach everyone is through network events like workshops and convenings.

We host workshops at national or regional charter school conferences which provides us with a valuable opportunity to provide direct support on issues charter school leaders of color face in our core areas of focus — academic and behavioral supports, finance and operations, teacher development, innovation and fundraising.

In 2018, NCC hosted the first Leaders of Color Convening focused on developing a national advocacy agenda to advocate for and grow charter school leaders of color. Subsequent convenings will focus on various elements of the agenda.
