Why Sponsor?

Sponsoring the NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) provides a unique vehicle to build relationships with independent school leaders who are looking to advance social justice in their schools. Attendees tell us that the conference provides not only networking and professional development opportunities, but that the whole conference experience is unique and meaningful. Sponsoring the conference gives your organization a chance to be part of that experience.
