INSPIRED (Inclusion Needed to Support Positive Impacts Reflecting Educator Diversity) is a group of current and former Nebraska educators, as well as community leaders, who believe in the importance of diversity in K-12 educators. Professor Destynie Sewell, JD, MBA, and Associate Professor of Business Law and Ethics with the UNO College of Business Administration (CBA), serves on the board of INSPIRED and is currently promoting the program’s three core pillars: pipeline programming, incentives and support, and legislative and public advocacy.
The organization aims to provide opportunities for more diverse educators at the front of K-12 classrooms throughout the state. INSPIRED is in the process of organizing as a 501(c)(3) non-profit to further validate their mission and receive funding towards their goals.
A UNO MBA Capstone class has taken on the project of helping INSPIRED create a strategic plan for non-profit recognition. If you’d like to learn more about INSPIRED or how you can get involved, reach out to Professor Destynie Sewell, JD, MBA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
