The unique structure of this conference invites twelve NJ independent schools to bring together a "pod" of individuals, each of whom can play a role in advancing the diversity discussion at his/her respective school; for example, students, parents, teachers, administrators, diversity coordinators, alumni, and members of the Board of Trustees. The pods reunite during the afternoon sessions to create action plans for their school inspired by the morning’s work.
