As the global community is beginning to awaken and venture out from the Covid-19 pandemic, we seek to engage activism and community connectedness from within and from outside the Council on Anthropology and Education (CAE). Now is the time for us to encourage more collective and individual activism especially since the pandemic has illuminated the disparities in education with communities of color and language learners. This “conversation” seeks to reach out directly to the past five years of Presidential Fellows to strengthen their commitment to serving within CAE and the field of educational anthropology. We look to senior scholar, Concha Delgado Giatan, to lead our conversation about lifelong mentoring and inspiring us into action. We will promote this event widely to include past mentors to Presidential Fellows and all CAE members, students, educators, and potential members to join us virtually. As part of our conversation, we also invite the incoming CAE President, Mariela Nuñez-Janes, who will be become the president at the annual conference, to share a few words about her vision for the upcoming year. We also invite active scholars committed to the work of the CAE Membership Committee to speak about their work to promote, grow, and support the members of CAE. Currently, there are several Concha Delgado Giatan Presidential Fellow serving as committee co-chairs and Executive Committee members within the organization. If asked why the commitment to giving back to CAE is so important, many would answer that mentorship is how they arrived at CAE and why they continue to be actively receiving and giving mentorship with other educational anthropologists in this community.
