ATLANTA (October 13, 2015) – Parrish Capital, LLC partners with Wisconsin’s Equity & Inclusion Laboratory to fund scholarships for The International Colloquium on Black Males in Education.
“We are pleased to support the mission of the International Colloquium,” said Ted Parrish, CIO of Parrish Capital. “The growing education gap is just as concerning as the growing wealth gap. Education is the key to closing both gaps.”
The Colloquium was held Oct. 6-9, 2015 in Kingston, Jamaica. As in past years, the Colloquium convened leading scholars and thinkers, high-impact practitioners, students, policy-makers, funders, and concerned citizens from around the globe.
The Colloquium is led by Dr. Jerlando F. L. Jackson, Colloquium Chair, Director of the Wei LAB, and Vilas Distinguished Professor of Higher Education at University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Dr. James L. Moore III, Director of the Bell Center on the African American Male, EHE Distinguished Professor of Urban Education, and Associate Provost at Ohio State University.
“As a Jamaican high school teacher attending my first colloquium, I would like to thank everyone who made it possible,” said attendee Wayne Campbell.
