CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program

The CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program is now accepting applications for cohort 7.

What is the CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program?
The Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR) Leadership Mentoring Program provides participants with an opportunity to participate in a formal and structured mentoring program. Mentors and protégés work together to develop goals and objectives that guide each towards a more meaningful leadership experience whereby participants combine professional learning and mentoring to succeed as a leader. The CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program develops a “mentoring culture” whereby mentors and protégés, together with other like-minded leaders, seize upon the opportunity to implement and participate in “Praxis” or “Intentional Activism,” meant to change the manner in which “things have always been done.”

CLEARvoz Journal – 2018 Edition No. 1

Dear CLEAR Members, Partners, and Supporters,

We are pleased to share the news that the latest issue of the CLEARvoz Journal has been published and is now available online at http://journals.sfu.ca/cvj/index.php/cvj/issue/view/9

In this edition we continue our efforts to address issues impacting social justice leadership, educational equity, and underrepresented group advocacy. The CLEARvoz Journal, a publication of the Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR), is focused on providing a multidisciplinary forum to provide a broad range of educators an avenue to share scholarly knowledge in K-20 education. We would like to thank the members of the Editorial Board and Editorial Review Board members for their time and support.

The five articles published in this journal issue bring to the forefront the need to be attentive to the manner in which areas of social justice leadership and equity are impacted in the educational system. The authors’ insights and perspectives truly challenge our reasoning and support the need for intentional activism (praxis). As the President and CEO of the Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR) I invite you to join us and become part of our social justice leadership movement.

Dr. Ken Magdaleno
