About Us

The Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education is committed to recruiting and assisting in producing career opportunities for educators and administrators from diverse backgrounds, and forming collaborative relationships that will enhance staff diversity within our schools districts.

MPDE’s Mission:

  • A commitment to excellence in education
  • A desire to provide equal educational opportunities to all
  • A commitment to increase diversity among their staff
  • A desire to provide resources and support toward the increase of teachers of color

In addition, most of our member towns in metropolitan Boston are longstanding participants in METCO, a voluntary urban-suburban student transfer program for students of color. We at the Massachusetts Partnership for Diversity in Education encourage you to learn more about obtaining employment opportunities through our organization. Openings are available in all academic areas and grade levels, and at all levels of experience and one contact will put you in touch for employment opportunities in all districts! If you believe it is important to make a positive change and work with the best in a supportive environment, we encourage you to submit your resume, or call a member school directly.

We invite other school systems to join MPDE in this collaborative effort to increase diversity in Greater Boston Schools. If your commitment to enhancing diversity in your district is a high priority, you can obtain membership information by contacting any of the officers listed below.
