Announcing our 2020 Keynote Speaker
Dr. Ebony Green
Dr. Ebony I. Green is a pioneer in creating systemic equitable outcomes for underrepresented students, namely children of color, at risk, and/or transgendered. In 2019, she was selected to lead the equity work as the Senior Director for Equity at the Institute for Student Achievement, where she supports school district nationally to ensure equitable outcomes for all students.
Prior to that, Dr. Green was tasked in 2016, to lead the Department of Equity and Access which oversees both the equity as well as the social and emotional needs of the 11,000 students enrolled in the Newburgh Enlarged City School District. As the district’s first Executive Director of Equity and Access, she was instrumental in developing an Equity Report Card and Fair Student Funding Formula which provided a baseline and leveraged resources to support the needs of students who have systemically been marginalized within the school district and greater society.
To that end, she was nationally recognized as a leader in the field of equity and selected by the Southern Education Foundation to be a part of the Racial Equity Leadership Network to develop sustainable district structures that will shape the ways in which children receive an equitable educational experience. Additionally, she was selected to serve as a panelist on Kerner Commission 50th Anniversary: Education and the Path to One Nation, Indivisible panel in Washington, DC to discuss practical application of equity within her school district and its’ implications for student outcomes for underrepresented youth. She has authored numerous blogs relating to equity as a pillar of civil rights and how integrating equity within complex organizations must be in the forefront of impacting global change in education.
Maintaining a firm commitment to teach and train the next generation of leaders, Dr. Ebony Green has taught as an adjunct professor at Mercy College, Pace University, and is currently serving at Bank Street College in New York City, where she developed a graduate course that examines the role of equity and intersectionality through the lens of Special Education and Fordham University where she teaches a course that examines the Impact of Prejudice.
Dr. Ebony Green, a teacher, principal, district leader and now nationally recognized champion for Equity, stands firm in her conviction even in the face of adversity to ensure that all children have a fighting chance to receive an equitable education.
Most importantly, Dr. Green prefers to be considered an ordinary person trying to do extraordinary things.
