Léman High School Students and Faculty Expand Horizons at Leadership Conferences

December 10, 2021

Every year in a different location throughout the US, NAIS hosts the People of Color Conference (POCc) and the Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC). This year, the Conferences were held virtually from November 29 to December 3. Reckoning with Impacts, Rolling with Just Intent was the guiding theme for the 2021 PoCC and Believing and Belonging in Our Schools, Reckoning with Injustice, Reconciling with Love was the guiding theme for the 2021 SDLC Conference.

Both week-long conferences provided unique opportunities for participants to engage in rich dialogue with students from different schools, educators of many disciplines and well-renowned Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) practitioners. Students developed cross-cultural communication skills, designed effective strategies for social justice practice through dialogue and the arts, and learned the foundations of allyship and networking principles. Educators were equipped with tools to “improve 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.”-NAIS  

Both students and educators had the occasion to network with people of color and allies of all backgrounds in independent schools across the country.

The year, Léman sent six students and two faculty members to experience the thought-provoking workshops, with inspiring speakers, affinity group spaces, and more. They all had very fruitful experiences.

Take a look at the attendees and learn about some of their experiences.
