Watkinson School is pleased to announce that it will host a half-day virtual conference on October 23 called, “Day of Community and Belonging”. Head of School Teri Schrader adds, “This is our first-ever virtual conference for the entire Watkinson community, past and present, to focus on the ways in which we can continue to examine and deepen our commitments to being an inclusive and anti-racist school.”
This is one of the most important dates on Watkinson’s 2021-22 calendar! The conference features keynote speaker Jason Craige Harris, a remarkable educator, and leader who, “brings together insights from diverse fields such as neuroscience and social psychology; diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging; anti-oppression education; conflict mediation; restorative justice; dialogue facilitation and group process; transformative coaching; leadership development; and spiritual guidance.”
This day marks the beginning of a public conversation about making Watkinson a more inclusive school that will continue throughout the year and beyond. If you are an employee, current parent, alum, alumni parent, or trustee, you are invited to register today!
