TFA town hall.

These monthly panels will convene experts around key topics impacting education to share their insights, learnings, and own leadership approach as they tackle the challenges of educational inequity from many angles. This is your space to get an inside look at our broader network and the work of One Day—especially during this unprecedented moment in time.

There is no doubt about it, Teach For America's greatest strength is its broad, talented, and diverse network. These Topical Panels will bring you into that network, providing you with opportunities to connect with alumni experts, experience our broad and diverse coalition first hand, and contribute to the larger movement toward educational equity. Each Topical Panel will focus on a key education-related issue and will feature whole-group conversation with experts, followed by small-group Q&A and break-out spaces.
