Affinity Group Network: Staff of Color

“SEE All, SERVE ALL, SUPPORT ALL” Reimagine Minnesota

Metro ECSU is offering an Affinity Group for staff of color and others interested in these conversations.

Who should attend: Teachers, Para professionals, licensed maintenance staff, counselors, bus drivers, nurses, administrators; anyone who has an instructional or support role in a school district

Join us and be a part of :

  • A network that will support ongoing dialogue on issues impacting professional and career development for staff of color.
  • A regional community that creates a space for staff of color to gain insights and support from others around the Metro.  


  • Staff of Color in Minnesota School Districts: What does that look like? What can districts do to build positive practices that aid in retention and recruitment?  Bring your ideas to add to the discussion.
