Free with registration
Panel via Zoom*
Promoting a culture of community feedback and internal self-reflection, Seattle JazzED confronted the organizational systems that inadvertently excluded the very students they sought to serve. During this session, JazzED team members—Kelly Clingan, Ricardo Luna, and Robert Babs—will share their unique perspectives, expertise, and personal experiences of three instances in which JazzED made significant financial and programmatic shifts to address the impact of racism and economic injustice on organizational operations, including a program location change to address transportation barriers; a transition from a financial aid model to a “pay what you can” strategy; and curriculum overhaul to address inherent educational systems bias. Moderated by Laurie de Koch.
