On December 8-10, in Atlanta, GA, Transcend's Lavada Berger will be at the 2016 NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC), the flagship event for leadership in educational equity and cultural inclusion in private, independent schools.
This year's theme is:
Advancing Human and Civil Rights –Fulfilling the Dream Together
Per NAIS, "The 2016 NAIS People of Color Conference theme is a fitting motif for this year's location (Atlanta) and a call to action for our schools in society. Rooted in the world-changing legacy of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we at NAIS and the conference co-chairs were united in a desire to invoke "the dream" as remembrance, aspiration, and inspiration for the work of equity, diversity, and social justice. Calling explicit attention to both human and civil rights invites critical thinking about the concerns of today and also recognizes the depth and comprehensiveness of Dr. King's approach to injustice and social equality."
If you are planning to come to the conference, look for Lavada and the Transcend exhibition!
