Fellow at Zaentz Early Childhood Initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education former Mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio and Year Up Founder & CEO Gerald Chertavian discuss Revolutionary Solutions for Education Equity at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

As inequitable systems continue to perpetuate the opportunity gap, particularly for underserved communities, revolutionary solutions are more pertinent than ever. Join former mayor Bill de Blasio and Year Up founder and CEO Gerald Chertavian for a discussion on redesigning education systems to ensure all individuals have equitable access to the future. As mayor of New York City, Bill oversaw the largest public school district in the US and will speak to his experience leveraging the power of government to solve education’s most pressing issues.  Moderated by Gerald and informed by his experience leading one of the most effective workforce development organizations in the US, the conversation will touch on addressing inequities in education, “cradle to career” pathways, and the importance of belonging and good governance.
