Changing the face of who gets to TEACH gifted so we can 
change who gets to BE gifted.


The Brilliance, Excellence and Equity Project is proud to partner with Huston-Tillotson University to bring you the inaugural Gifted in Color conference. Join us for three days on the campus of Austin’s only historically Black institution as we unpack how power and privilege impact who gets to be brilliant in the United States – and what we can do to change the narrative.

The BEE Project exists because we recognize the difference Black and Brown teachers make in the educational experience of Black and Brown students. In fulfillment of our mission to support the brilliance of students of color and their families, we work to increase the number of Black and Latino educators certified to lead gifted and talented programs across the country.

Our mission

The BEE Project inspires, trains, and advocates for Black and Hispanic education leaders to equitably design and lead gifted and talented education programs through an asset-based framework that supports the unique needs of brilliant students of color and their families. 

The BEE Project envisions a world where three realities exist:
