The New York City Mayor's Office and NYC Men Teach partnered with Shindig to host a video chat discussion forum that would explain the shortage of male teachers of color, the strategies deployed by the city to resolve this deficit, and the progress of the program.
The event was promoted via social media, email lists, and professional networks. The advertising drew hundreds of impressions and shares, motivating many to sign up and attend.
This inspirational event drew educators from around the country while also highlighting the successes and trajectory for the NYC Men Teach initiative.
