The Council's Commission on Diversity and Inclusivity regional sessions will focus on enhancing the capacity of system leaders to foster school environments that meet the needs of all learners, promote cultural competence, actively recruit multi-ethnic and multi-racial staff, and to ensure voices from all groups of people within the school community are heard. Superintendents and their leadership teams are encouraged to attend the one-day workshop in their region, which entails expert presentations and time allotted for district teams to formulate plans to transform schools into places where the value of each student stands alone and where diversity and inclusivity is the norm. 

Participants will discuss the purpose and importance of the work, what cultural proficiency looks like; hear from EdTrust on the organization’s latest findings and from a top Microsoft executive on what’s next in the diversity conversation. District planning time is built in to the day for district teams to develop specific action plans for their districts. 

A room block has been established at the Hampton Inn Manhattan/Times Square Central, located at 220 West 41st Street, New York, NY for December 12 at the rate of $275. Book your room online or by calling 800-428-7866 by November 21, 2019. There is an option to extend your stay prior or after 12/12/19. Details available in the booking link provided.
