Career Series - Advancing Equity


Shantel E. Meek

Shantel Meek, a professor of practice and the founding director of the Children's Equity Project (CEP) at Arizona State University, will join us via Zoom to talk about her career in both research and the federal government. The Children's Equity Project works to close opportunity gaps and dismantle systemic racism in learning settings to ensure that children reach their full potential. Meek started her career as a clinical researcher focused on autism; she then served as a policy advisor in the White House and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and as a consultant to the Bipartisan Policy Center before launching CEP. We will ask Shantel how she got started, the twists and turns her career has taken, and her advice for students just starting their careers.
