Lauryn Mascareñaz

Lauryn Mascareñaz, EdD, is the director of equity affairs for Wake County Public Schools. A career educator, she spent 10 years as an elementary classroom teacher and instructional coach in Denver, Colorado, and the Bay Area of California.

Her passion for culturally responsive instruction also led her to Learning for Justice (formerly Teaching Tolerance), a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, where she served as a teaching and learning specialist. Dr. Mascareñaz is inspired by the equity-minded educators she works alongside every day and is particularly dedicated to closing the opportunity gap for young males of color.

She works with school stakeholders to strategically plan their equity work and confront roadblocks that are unique to their communities. As a presenter, she has toured the United States speaking on topics such as anti-bias curriculum, courageous conversations about race, and leading for systemic equity.

Dr. Mascareñaz received a bachelor’s degree in American and ethnic studies and a master’s degree in language, literacy, and culturally responsive teaching from the University of Colorado. She earned a doctorate in leadership and organizational systems from Vanderbilt University.
