Suzanne Edwards-Acton

Director of Equity Initiatives

Suzanne identifies potential barriers to access for new teachers, and develops initiatives to increase awareness and support of equity and inclusion values for the Community Partnerships for Teachers Pipeline. She previously served as the Field Director for the Los Angeles Urban Teacher Residency, assisting graduating residents in job placement and providing school-year support to first- and second-year LAUTR teachers.

Education is often referred to as a great equalizer and yet often serves as a great divide. I have come to understand my call and charge within education to be a disruptor of the status quo and collaborator in liberatory re-design.
