Each spring, the UC Davis Equity Summit coalesces people, ideas and institutions to deepen strategies, shape our actions and formulate solutions. This annual event addresses the pertinent social issues of our time. Educators, community members and experts with perspectives from a range of disciplines come together to help guide our understanding and propel us forward.

"I expected the 7th Annual Equity Summit to be intriguing and empowering, but I never imagined how meaningful of an impact it would make in how I envisioned my own future. When Dr. Vajra Watson, founder of Sacramento Area Youth Speaks (SAYS), said, 'Stand up if you are an agent of change,' and everyone in the room stood up, I was overcome with a sense of belonging and unity, a sense of feeling I was at the right place, at the right time. As a sociology student at UC Davis, structural change in the world has been a main focus of my studies. I previously dismissed teaching as a potential career because I believed it to be designated to micro-level change. The Equity Summit opened my eyes to see how it is possible to make societal change through education. Not only are our children the future of this planet, but changing social institutions, like public education, can make a broader impact on the community."
