Adama Sallu, Director of Equity and Inclusion at Chandler Unified School District, will speak at the Oct. 19, 2020, AAUW SEV Branch meeting by Zoom. She will address the changes in the educational experiences of girls in Chandler schools. The public is welcome.
Dr. Sallu is a national and statewide presenter on educational equity, having presented at various conferences across the country focusing on cultural pedagogical practices as a vehicle in closing the achievement gap. She was the recipient of the 2016 City of Tempe, Arizona, Martin Luther King Jr. Education Award. She passionately believes that gender, color, and gender identity should not impede opportunities in our schools and has developed a metric with the five focuses of access, achievement, discipline, graduation rate, and perception.
Sallu received her bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from Our Lady of the Elms College in Chicopee, Mass.; her master’s degree in social work from Smith College in Northampton, Mass.; her principal certification from Northern Arizona University; and her doctorate in educational administration and supervision from Arizona State University.
