NA Will Participating in Far Brook School’s Second Annual Diversity Conference
On Saturday, November 11, Newark Academy will participate in Far Brook School’s Second Annual Diversity Conference: Widening the Lens. This daylong dynamic and interactive program is intended to educate and train school leadership to broaden and improve inclusion within the vastly diverse communities of New Jersey’s independent schools. 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.
