TED talks make great teaching tools, and so we’ve created a reflection and discussion guide for the TEDx talk “How to become an inclusive leader” by Dr. Meagan Pollock.
On October 25, 2021, I accomplished a life goal– to give a TEDx talk. The event was hosted by Wolcott College Prep in Chicago, and I couldn’t be happier with the result! It is 11 minutes, and you won’t regret learning “how to become an inclusive leader.”

Most of us learned the Golden Rule in kindergarten, and our teachers suggested using it as a plumb line for all types of human interactions.

In this post, we compare a student’s career journey to a business’ customer journey map and reflect on which part along the way we play.
For issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, we must find the root causes for our specific populations before diving in with well-intentioned interventions that may miss the mark and leave us no better than before we started. In this 3.5-minute illustrative video, we challenge you to act like a child and don’t stop asking why until you get to the bottom of things.
Consulting Opportunity: Best Practices for Recruiting Students into Nontraditional STEM and CTE Programs and Pathways
We are seeking a consultant to help us develop a new resource that summarizes the best practices for recruiting students into nontraditional STEM and CTE programs and pathways.
A high school graduate shares the top three reasons why she had a fixed mindset instead of a growth mindset, and offers tips for educators.
Nontraditional careers are any in which one gender represents less than 25% of the workforce. For example, women in engineering or men in nursing. When many of these careers are high-wage, and high-demand jobs, it is imperative that we remove barriers and increase the participation and completion of women and men in nontraditional educational pathways. This workshop equips educators with tools and strategies for recruitment and retention.
