Why Sponsor?

We are reimagining the 2020 NAIS People of Color Conference and Student Diversity Leadership Conference to bring the community spirit and networking energy to an inspired and engaging online space. We will share more details about the reimagined conference experience—and sponsorship opportunities—soon.

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.
