What We Do

The Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education is committed to recruiting and assisting in producing career opportunities for educators and administrators from diverse backgrounds and forming collaborative relationships that will enhance staff diversity within our school districts. Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education is formerly the Affirmative Action Recruitment Consortium of Eastern Massachusetts (AARC).

MPDE is a recruiting consortium of Massachusetts public school districts whose mission is to locate outstanding candidates of color for teaching, administrative and support positions, and whose goal is to provide resources and support toward the development and overall increase of educators of color.

MPDE communities are exceptionally supportive of public education, making these school systems among the best in the Northeast. Member communities differ in many respects, but each share:

  • a commitment to excellence in education
  • a desire to provide equal educational opportunities to all
  • Another bullet point here
  • a commitment to increase diversity among their staff

More teachers of color would:
  • increase the number of role models for students of color
  • provide opportunities for all students to learn about ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity
  • be able to enrich diverse students' learning because of shared racial, ethnic, and cultural identities
  • serve as cultural brokers, able not only to help students navigate their school environment and culture, but also to increase the involvement of other teachers and their students' parents
