A dynamic speaker and educator, Beth Martinez is Education Director of the Albany Region ADL. Her position includes bringing A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute anti-bias and anti-bullying training programs, workshops and resources to students, parents, teachers, and administrators in grades K-12, as well as delivering Echoes and Reflections Holocaust Education workshops to educators in the greater capital region of New York.
