The KASA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Leadership Summit will be an opportunity to share innovations, build community, and collaborate while exploring the importance of DEIB and processes for determining priorities for school systems, both at the school and district level. Sessions will go beyond the rhetoric and prioritize strategies that promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging efforts in our schools and school communities. This summit is for any school leader who works with a diverse student population and wants to build diverse, high performing teams that impact student learning for all scholars.
