Students and Faculty Will Attend 2017 NAIS People of Color Conference

A group of Newark Academy faculty and students will travel to Anaheim, CA from November 30-December 2, 2017 to attend the 2017 National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) People of Color Conference (PoCC)/Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC). PoCC equips educators at every level, from teachers to trustees, with knowledge, skills, and experiences to improve and enhance the interracial, interethnic, and intercultural climate in their schools. Similarly, SDLC, a multiracial and multicultural gathering of Upper School student leaders from across the U.S., helps participants develop effective cross-cultural communication skills, and better understand the nature and development of effective strategies for social justice.
