Invitation to attend Credential Engine’s open meeting of its Equity Advisory Council

We invite you to join the Credential Engine team and our Equity Advisory Council members on Wednesday, May 25th at 2:00 pm ET to participate in the first open meeting for the Council on Credential Transparency & Equitable Pathways, Transfer, and Recognition of Learning. 

The goal of this council is to identify appropriate definitions of equitable pathways, transfer, and recognition of learning so we may best describe and represent them in open, transparent credential data. The Council will also develop guidelines for the appropriate curation and use of such credential data to maximize the likelihood of equitable outcomes, with specific attention to improving how such data are made available to students, workers, counselors, parents, and others that maximize their value in helping individuals achieve equitable outcomes.

The general public is invited to engage with and contribute to the Council’s meetings, materials, deliberations, and recommendations. This first open meeting will provide a brief introduction of council members, a council overview, and a presentation from Credential Engine’s Chief Technology Services Officer, Jeanne Kitchens, on Credential Engine’s current definitions of pathways, transfer, and recognition of learning and the terms they comprise.  We will then have a conversation about data requirements for pathways and transfer when considered through the lens of equity.
