When Diversity Isn’t Enough

Three education leaders will discuss how they are re-examining their missions and values in a time of increasing awareness of social inequity. Participants will engage in a dialogue that examines where our missions begin and end, and what partnerships we should be developing to have a broader impact. The panel will also examine what leaders are doing to promote diversity, inclusion and equity within their organizations, and how talking about race is not only a goal, but an essential conversation for mission-driven businesses and nonprofits.
