focused on the theme: Voices for Equity and Justice Now and in Every Generation: Lead, Learn, Rededicate, and Deliver.
On November 30 and December 1, 19 PS1 teachers attended the People of Color Conference in Anaheim, CA to discuss this year's theme: Voices for Equity and Justice Now and in Every Generation: Lead, Learn, Rededicate, and Deliver. As a pluralistic school, it is particularly appropriate to join with 6,000 educators from schools all around the country to explore issues around diversity and social justice, marking PS1's commitment to these issues within our curriculum and in our everyday lives.
The People of Color Conference is the flagship of the National Association of Independent Schools' commitment to equity and justice in teaching and learning. The mission of the conference is to provide a safe space for leadership and professional development and networking for people of color and allies of all backgrounds in independent schools. PoCC equips educators at every level, from teachers to trustees, with knowledge, skills, and experiences to improve and enhance the interracial, interethnic, and intercultural climate in their schools, as well as the attending academic, social-emotional, and workplace performance outcomes for students and adults alike.
