Across Colors Diversity Conference (Across Colors) is a biennial event, hosted by the Independent School Alliance. Across Colors boasts a mix of presentations, workshops, panels, and networking sessions that are designed to highlight the diversity, equity, and inclusion work in our independent schools.
As we look toward Across Colors’ first-ever virtual conference, we will explore topics and discussions related to the theme: Generating the Energy for Change: Centering Voice of Truth, Cultivating Accomplice Activism and Reconciliation. We are excited to engage a broader audience in a dynamic, interactive format. From the incidents of police violence against Black Americans to the disparate effects of the global pandemic on people of color, systematic racism and inequities have been brought to the forefront. There has never been a more salient time to connect as a community of independent school administrators, educators, students and parents to discuss topics that have an interconnected impact.
The Independent School Alliance for Minority Affairs (Alliance) is a leading educational access nonprofit organization founded in 1985. The mission of the Alliance is to empower children of exceptional talent and potential from racially underrepresented and economically underserved communities in order to transform independent schools and society. Working with 50+ member schools, the Alliance recruits, educates, counsels and advocates on behalf of families of color in greater Los Angeles.
