About the Summit

In a time of increased cultural diversity, global connectivity, and polarization of perspectives, how can leaders in classrooms, schools, districts, and education policy arenas support students with the competencies to thrive in college, careers, and as citizens in diverse communities?

  • Network with innovative and inspiring teachers, principals, district leaders, thought leaders, and NGOs committed to educating students for a diverse, global society.
  • Receive resources and generate new ideas that can help you make immediate changes in your educational context.
