This HerRise Salon Talk will delve into the journey towards equality and provide insights into the challenges faced and progress made towards creating a more equitable society.

Meet Dr. Erika D. Tate, PhD

Erika is the founder of Bluknowledge LLC, a learning firm that advances equity through the design and study of learning experiences in schools and communities.

For 20 years, She worked to positively change education and community health through research, design, and evaluation through quantitative and qualitative methods to investigate evidence-based practices that support learning and health among children, youth, and adults, individually and as families and communities.

Erika provides high-quality and responsive design, research, and evaluation consulting and advisory services on nationally-funded research grants. Examples include several National Science Foundation grants to design and research technology-enhanced STEM learning experiences for classroom, after-school, and community settings; serving as an advisor to the Anti-Racism Interactive Science Education partnership at the University of California, Berkeley and the Environmental Protectors project at the Lawrence Hall of Science; and conducting program evaluation for a district-wide K-2 music education program.

Her community-based projects have focused on realizing racial equity in education; increasing food access in under-resourced communities; engaging parents in childhood obesity prevention, and growing the number of insured children.

Through her life’s work, She aims to empower equity-driven learning for all, amplify voices often unheard, and advocate for change that benefits those who need it the most.
