Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The IAGC, in accordance with its mission and as an affiliate of the National Association for Gifted Children ("NAGC"), supports and joins in the NAGC's June 5, 2020 statement: NAGC Denounces Racism and Stands for Social Justice.  

The IAGC is dedicated in its mission to address opportunity and excellence gaps among subgroups from different racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds and continues its work as follows:

  • Advocating for state policies and funding to provide advanced and accelerated programming in schools throughout Illinois. 

  • Providing professional learning opportunities and sharing resources to support equitable identification policies for advanced and accelerated learning programs, culturally responsive classroom practices, and a talent development approach that provides all learners with educational experiences to meet their learning needs and develop potential. 

  • Engaging in outreach to provide resources to families of diverse children with gifts and talents throughout Illinois. 

The Illinois Association for Gifted Children is committed to increasing our outreach to educators, school/district leadership, and families in diverse communities and school districts throughout Illinois. To further this goal, the IAGC is planning a virtual conference in February 2021 to support educators, families, and students through evidence-based identification and instructional practices that support equity, inclusion, and diversity in advanced programming. More information will be shared over the coming weeks.
