Latest News & Events
Ravi and Britannica have extended their partnership into 2020. This means we can partially subsidize the cost of a keynote to qualifying educational events which will amount to a generous 40% savings for you. To secure your partially subsidized keynote, please reply to this email with your planned date and location so we can let you know the details and hold the date for you. Don’t delay, as the funds are limited and allocated on a first come-first serve basis.

He will fly straight from there to give the keynote in December for VASCD (Virginia ASCD) in historic Williamsburg VA, and will speak on Cultural Competence as a Pathway to Equity in Education.
