When thinking about gender equity, the discussion in states is too often limited to the performance accountability requirements in federal law, but how do we move beyond mere compliance and toward a discussion about how to achieve true gender equity and access to high-quality CTE pathways for each learner? In this breakout, you will discuss strategies for achieving real gender equity with Mimi Lufkin, Chief Executive Officer, National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE), and Adaku Onyeka-Crawford, Senior Counsel for Education at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC).

NAPE is a consortium of state and local agencies, corporations, and national organizations. Through its four lines of business—professional development, technical assistance, research and evaluation, and advocacy—NAPE strives to achieve its mission of building educators’ capacity to implement effective solutions for increasing student access, educational equity, and workforce diversity.

NWLC has worked for more than 40 years to protect and promote equality and opportunity for women and families. NWLC champions policies and laws that help women and girls achieve their potential at every stage of their lives — at school, at work, at home, in their health, and in retirement. NWLC is committed to take on the toughest challenges, especially for the most vulnerable women.
