Buckley students and faculty members attended the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) and People of Color Conference (PoCC) in Nashville.
This year, SDLC celebrated its 25th anniversary. Our students joined 1,640 high school students from across the US and seven other countries with the amazing SDLC faculty, led by Rodney Glasgow, featuring silent movement and other identity development and leadership activities.
Students and faculty participated in workshops and affinity group sessions and listened to thoughtful remarks by Nashville’s mayor, David Briley; a keynote address by journalist and author, Lisa Ling; and a presentation by Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children’s Defense Fund.
The Office of Equity and Inclusion and the English Department welcomed guests from Flintridge Prep, including student speaker, Leon Kuo, Dr. Tyke O’Brien, Chair of the English Department, and Ms. Ingrid Herskind, History Faculty and Global Studies Coordinator, for our Identity and Storytelling Series.
