A message from our Team:
We here at the Alliance would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who made the 2017 Across Colors Diversity Conference a success! Thank you to the volunteers who gave of their time and skills and made sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you to the presenters who gave such awesome and engaging workshops and to our keynote speakers who told such powerful and compelling stories. Thank you to Harvard Westlake School for hosting us. And last but certainly not least, thank you to all the participants who engaged thoughtfully and critically in throughout the day and truly made the conference what it was. We could not have done it without each and every one of you.
The Independent School Alliance for Minority affairs was founded in part with the mission "to provide on-going support programs for students and their families; and to act as a resource to member schools assisting them in their individual efforts to address issues of racial diversity and multicultural education.". We recognize that this is not easy work, and as was said many times on Saturday, it is work that is never done. As you continue to engage with the tough questions and uncomfortable exploration that are in many ways "more than classes and books," we hope that you will call on us to be a resource for information, facilitation, professional development, student empowerment, and support.
