MDHEWD 2023 Equity Summit: Advancing Innovation in Rural Education

November 7, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:15 pm

Join the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development for their annual Equity Summit! 

The Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development envisions a collaborative effort between the state and institutions of higher education to deliver equitable outcomes for rural students. As a part of the state’s effort to increase degree attainment amongst Missourians to 60% and workforce participation at 70% by 2030, a focus on rural education is imperative. Developing partnerships, fostering community, exploring innovative practices for rural pedagogy, and initiating teacher education programs to serve high-need occupations are the key topic tracks for the Summit. 

At 1-2:30pm CT, Kristie Larson, Strategic Relationships Manager of The DeBruce Foundation will lead a session titled, “Activating Agilities to Explore Careers and Build Networks.” She will discuss how tools such as the Agile Work Profiler, Agilities framework, and Career Explorer Tools can help individuals enhance their career literacy by leveraging their skills and interests. Couple that knowledge with the network strength found in rural community partnerships, and students will be equipped with what it takes to launch careers and navigate career transitions across a lifetime.

This virtual conference will offer synchronous participation in workshops, featured speaker sessions, and trend topics. In addition, the sessions will be recorded and made available On Demand for those unable to participate in the conference.
