Quantum Ten Equity in Education Conference
December 8th - 10th, join Transforming Leaders for our very first Quantum Ten (Q10) Equity in Education Conference. Q10 is a holistic approach to prioritizing and strengthening EQUITY in Education. This fusion of 10 different theories, frameworks and practices are integrated to focus on enhancing educational equity. Each can stand alone, however, when they are integrated, they create a strong synergy that can go far beyond their individual potential and become an empowering, holistic approach to address systemic inequities. The purpose of this conference is to:

  • Expand upon understanding of Q10 theories, frameworks and practices.
  • Transform practice by advancing knowledge of the elements of the Q10 Framework.
  • Sustain a holistic approach to educational equity within a community of educators.
