About the Speakers

Words of Appreciation

Greetings and appreciation for your presence today at this inaugural, celebration of our four-year exploratory project. I know for sure that our theme, Migration, Language, and Education Policy in Global Context is a much bigger conversation than ones that have happened in this project and will take place today. We are looking forward to engaging far-reaching conversations and team building during this summit to take us beyond where we are now into future possibilities toward creating more equitable, just and fulfilling educational experiences for all learners including migrant or refugee learners, teachers, leaders, policymakers and other valued stakeholders who serve our schools, communities and government.

The summit kickstarts with welcoming words from Dr. Penny Hammrich, Drexel U’s Interim Dean followed by featured speakers, panelists, breakout collaboration in Teach to Lead Teams, Team Reports, Closing Words and a Gallery Walk during a very tasty Roof Top Reception to continue our networking.

We know gatherings like this do not happen by accident, therefore, we appreciate your support, trust and time investment to make this summit a success!
