Maumee Valley sent six people to the Diversity Summit: Essential Skills for a Changing Climate, in Chicago and presented by Alison Park and Dawan Julien. This conference welcomed all who share a commitment to diversity, equity, and justice in our schools. The Summit provided an opportunity to learn new strategies; understand current research while considering school culture, resources, and challenges; and, possible steps for advancing work in these areas. Participants heard from leading practitioners, learned about specific strategies, connected with other committed educators, celebrated successes, renewed commitments, and returned to school with informed plans for action. Participants shared the energy of these essential and energizing conversations.
