The KASA Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Leadership Summit will be held January 30, 2024 at the Galt House in Louisville. This 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.

Keynote Speakers

Speak Up!
This uplifting and inspiring keynote will ask each administrator to speak up to bring his or her school or district closer together. Using equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives is simply another way of saying love and respect for all is critical in schools and in life. Administrators will be asked to speak up and not allow a positive and unifying issue such as equity, diversity, and inclusion to build “barriers” in their schools and community when they can use this issue to build the kind of welcoming, all-inclusive place everyone deserves. 

Presented by Larry Bell
