Independent schools have a range of interests in supporting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Some schools are focused on representation (diversity) while others are focused on a sense of belonging (inclusion). However, how are schools addressing the real work that comes along with disrupting power and access (equity)? What are the red flags that DEI practitioners should look for in the leadership, community, and practices at schools that say they are ready for equity? What do you do when there are conflicting messages about your role or the purpose of your position? 

Join Dr. Liza Talusan and Dr. Keith Hinderlie, two experienced DEI professionals and scholars, in this dynamic and interactive workshop to explore institutional and individual frameworks for assessing and addressing red flags in DEI positions.  You will gain new perspectives and tools to apply at your own school site as well as build connections to a larger community of DEI practitioners.


This workshop is geared towards DEI practitioners.
