2021 NAIS Online People of Color Conference (November 29-December 3)
Acknowledging responsibility and taking principled action to redress wrongs is the call to character and courage in the national movement of our time. Reckoning with Impacts, Rolling with Just Intent is the guiding theme for the Online 2021 PoCC.
PoCC is the flagship of NAIS’s commitment to equity and justice in teaching, learning, and organizational development. The mission of the conference is to provide a safe space for leadership and professional development for people of color, 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 and skills 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.
In an engaging virtual space, the Online 2021 PoCC will offer thought-provoking workshops, inspiring speakers, affinity group spaces, and more.
