29 Oct A Message from Janine Jones, Head of DEI + Associate Director of Admission
HW is a Silver Sponsor of this year’s Across Colors Diversity Conference. The conference is being held virtually on Saturday, November 6 from 10am to 4pm. As a Silver Sponsor, we have unlimited registrations for members of the Harvard-Westlake community. More information can be found below and here: https://www.independentschoolalliance.org/acdc21. Please send Janine an email at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible if you would like to attend all or even a portion of the conference so our tickets don’t go to waste. The lineup is pretty impressive!
“Across Colors Diversity Conference (Across Colors) is a biennial event, hosted by the Independent School Alliance. Across Colors boasts a mix of presentations, workshops, panels, and networking sessions that are designed to highlight the diversity, equity, and inclusion work in our independent schools.
As we look toward Across Colors’ first-ever virtual conference, we will explore topics and discussions related to the theme: Generating the Energy for Change: Centering Voice of Truth, Cultivating Accomplice Activism and Reconciliation. We are excited to engage a broader audience in a dynamic, interactive format. From the incidents of police violence against Black Americans to the disparate effects of the global pandemic on people of color, systematic racism and inequities have been brought to the forefront.”
