There is a fundamental disconnect between the policies designed to serve all gifted students in Washington State, and those historically disenfranchised within the system by race, ethnicity, culture or language. Guest speakers from both the University of Washington College of Education and across the country will lead discussions about access and equity related to highly capable programs and services.

There is no registration fee, but an RSVP is required for admission. This summit is hosted by the UW's Robinson Center for Young Scholars.
