About the Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR)
The Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR) is dedicated to eliminating educational and social disparities which impede equitable opportunities and outcomes for all students and the communities from which they arrive. This includes advocacy by its leadership which is called upon to intentionally amplify a collective voice of educational leaders and allies through a forum of professional learning, political action, and community empowerment.

About the CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Summit
“Celebrating Leadership!” is the theme of the CLEAR 7th Annual Leadership Mentoring Summit. Leaders from around the state and nation will have the opportunity to connect and collaborate on top leadership, social justice, and mentoring opportunities and subjects. Attendees network with other leaders in a setting where difficult discussions are promoted, and strategies are shared. The Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR) is made up of leader practitioners and researchers involved in developing other leaders and addressing issues of social justice not necessarily spoken of in a safe and open setting. Join us on March 1, 2019 and become part of the solution…

Call for Proposals
We are accepting presentation proposals to share leadership insights, best practices, emerging trends, and important research updates. Presentations will be sixty minutes (60) – per session and are expected to focus on an aspect of “Leadership” from a perspective of social change or social impact. This is an opportunity to share your expertise with those actively engaged in Prek-12, Higher Education, Business and Community-based organizations.

Submission Proposal Requirements
There is a great need for leaders to expand their capacity in order to meet the needs of a rapidly changing society; action is called upon now more than ever. This demands a “Call to Action” that includes but is not limited to helping broaden leadership viewpoints by providing exposure to different perspectives on the school, university, business or community sectors and offering deeper and more meaningful insight. There is great potential in addressing important social justice and equity leadership factors which impact socioeconomic, gender, ethnic and racial issues.

With this in mind, we seek presentation proposals that accomplish any of the following:

  • Develop background knowledge regarding how leadership impacts issues of social justice, cultural proficiency, and equity
  •  Suggest new ideas and best practices for the development of successful leadership practices in the areas of social justice, cultural proficiency, and equity
  •  Propose a methodology or evaluation model for such leadership practices
  • Demonstrate the effectiveness of existing leadership practices in “social change and activism”

CLEAR looks forward to receiving proposals that include participants from diverse backgrounds, levels of experience, and from varied institutional and organization types.
