2021 Organizational Updates

The Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR) will celebrate our 10th anniversary this year. I have a great deal of pride in the fact that we have maintained our belief system and integrity as Social Justice Leaders since our inception. This occurs because of and as a result of understanding that an organization is only as good as the people in it. Such is the reality of the Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR). As Founder and CEO of CLEAR I am pleased to share ongoing and future development with a fine group of people and want to begin this special year by acknowledging them and their efforts on our behalf: 

  • The names and positions of our Board of Directors, some who have been with CLEAR for a number of years, can be found by following this link https://clearvoz.com/board-members/
  • Our leadership team, so vital to the work we do can be found by following this link: https://clearvoz.com/leadership-team/
  • We are very proud of the Professional Development CLEAR is currently providing and which is available to school districts, higher education, and community organizations. This Program is developed by Dr. Peter Flores, our Director of Equity. You can learn more by visiting: https://clearvoz.com/our-work/equity/
  • Our research team, led by Dr. Mahmoud Suleiman of CSU Bakersfield and vital to both P-12 and Higher Education can only be described as “determined and persistent.” No one deserves more credit, and yet is likely not to accept it, than Dr. Suleiman. The Journal of Leadership, Equity and Research (JLER) would not exist if not for his efforts. I am also pleased to acknowledge Dr. Gil Conchas, now at Penn State, for his work on behalf of the Chicano/LatinX community and publication of a JLER Special Editions which will soon be added to our publication section. You may learn more about our Research strand by visiting: https://clearvoz.com/our-work/research/journal/
  • As Founder/CEO, I have the good fortune of continuing as mentor for the Leadership Strand of CLEAR. A list of Cohort 9 of our Social Justice Leadership Mentoring Program participants and information regarding the program may be found by following this link: https://clearvoz.com/clear-social-justice-leadership-mentoring-program-cohort-9/
