Thank you to everyone who participated and supported our event!

The Across Colors Diversity Conference (ACDC) is the flagship of the Independent School Alliance's commitment to supporting the diversity initiatives in independent schools. It is a biennial conference and its mission is to provide a safe space for the professional development of parents, board members, faculty and staff of all backgrounds in independent schools. ACDC also allows students to engage in hands-on activities and participate in content-based discussions on the importance of building and sustaining inclusive, nurturing forward-thinking independent school campuses. 

The theme of this year's conference was EMPATHY FIRST: CULTIVATING DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION AND JUSTICE!
