EdHub STL implements this call to action by leveraging the Venture Cafe platform of connecting innovators with the systems thinking strategy of SkipNV to create a dedicated physical space where educators work creatively to solve our region’s most entrenched educational issues. We do this through the following programs | pathways;

  • Equity Events + Professional Learning Experiences for Educators: We host monthly workshops as well as quarterly Cafe Night Events focused on education equity with both local and national speakers in an effort to galvanize the power of educators around issues we see and how they can be addressed.


  • Scholarship Fund for Education Events at Innovation Hall: We offer event and meeting space to education organizations aligned with our mission to provide equitable opportunities for educators, parents and students to convene, connect and collaborate. 

    Schools and organizations providing and/or supporting education within the Promise Zone (Ferguson-Florissant, Hazelwood, Jennings, Normandy, Riverview, St. Louis Public Schools and University City) will receive space sponsorship at 100% on up to 3 events per year that are focused on education, professional development and better outcomes for students. Other schools and education focused organizations will pay a reduced rate depending on event mission. 


    Education related events such as fundraisers, staff parties etc. will receive a 20% discount on our spaces no matter the organization or school location/demographics served.


  • Education Fellowship: Empowers education leaders and education “intrapreneurs” to develop and/or expand transformative initiatives with equity at the center. Fellows lead a mission critical project, program or systems change for their school or school district, government education agency, education focused community organization, or education non-profit. Each participant receives mentorship, training from industry leaders, support of The School of Social System Design at Washington University, free office space at CIC (4220 Duncan) over the course of 9 months and have access to funding. Fellows complete the program with an design + implementation plan for effective, equitable and systemic transformation for their program, project, organization or school.

  • How Do We Define Education Equity:  EdHub STL defines education equity as a state where race, ethnicity, gender, disability, or any other targeted group identity does not predict education outcomes. If we examine outcomes for students with targeted identities, in any system in St. Louis City or County, we see that there are significant inequities present.  Given this, the work is for us to grapple with how we got here, interrogate the systems that keep inequities in place and to reimagine what education equity looks like so that all students are thriving, no matter what backgrounds they come from. “As a region (and a nation) we do not adequately resource education. The discipline gaps are not simply a failure on the part of educators—they are the result of systems failures. Sure, we might not all be the ones disciplining students, but we have failed to build an education system that prevents these disparities, and we have failed to correct that system when they emerged.” –Falling Through the Cracks Report, 2019
