Sponsorship Opportunities

Why Sponsor the Summit?

Building on the learning we gained in our pivot to a virtual 2020 Summit, our 2021 Summit will be a hybrid event of in-person and digital programming.

Becoming a Summit sponsor puts your organization at the forefront of efforts to improve educational outcomes for all students, with an emphasis on reducing inequities in educational outcomes for low-income students and students of color.
