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.

Keynote Speakers

Mr. Larry Bell 
Larry Bell's lifelong dedication to teaching began at Gar-field High School in Woodbridge, VA, where he passionately educated students for 15 years, including some of the most challenging ones. His impact extends to schools and districts across the country, where his strategies continue to yield impressive results. Larry Bell's mission is to inspire and empower educators to be their very best. His motto is "On your worst day on the job, you are still some child's best hope!"

Dr. Paul Miller

Dr. Miller has been in education for over 22 years and has developed systems that work to make sure young Black and Hispanic children have the ability to achieve and reach college. In his previous placement, with the help of his team, they have consistently achieved graduation rates over 95 percent, 100 percent acceptance to college, and millions of dollars in scholarship money for over 97 percent of young men of color. Dr. Miller identifies several factors that currently hold children back from succeeding and provide strategies as to how We Can Do Better as individuals, families, communities, and as educators.
