People of Color Conference (PoCC)

Posted by Kelly Conn on 29 Nov 2011

This week fifteen representatives from The Chestnut School are attending the 2011 NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) and Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

PoCC is the flagship of NAIS's equity and justice initiatives. The mission of the conference is to provide a safe space for networking and a professional development opportunity for people, who, by virtue of their race or ethnicity, comprise a form of diversity termed "people of color" in independent schools. PoCC serves as an energizing, revitalizing gathering for people who experience independent schools differently.  More information can be found at: http://pocc.nais.org/.
