At the Heart of Our Identity: Being Episcopal, Being Inclusive

An NAES conference on Episcopal identity, equity, and inclusion

The Purpose of This Conference

There is a clear connection between the values we share as a part of our Episcopal identity and the work we are doing to foster diversity and inclusion in our respective communities. The conference is designed for diversity practitioners in Episcopal schools, school chaplains, school leaders, and others associated with Episcopal schools eager to build upon and to further this all-important bridge.

What Makes This NAES Conference Unique?

This will be a valuable opportunity to connect with colleagues of different levels of experience in Episcopal schools, for chaplains and diversity practitioners to find ways of partnering more effectively, to explore avenues of self-care in the midst of challenging work, and to learn about strategies for planning and monitoring your school’s progress in building a program based on the unique mission of an Episcopal school.

Conference Will Include Topics Such As...

  • Diversity & inclusion—where to begin?
  • Chaplains and diversity practitioners working together
  • Avoiding the silos of diversity work
  • Religious diversity
  • How to carry on difficult conversations within the school community
  • The place of articulating Episcopal identity in a pluralistic environment
  • Understanding the place of affinity groups in a school
  • Gender and hiring policies
  • The place of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in work with parents
  • Managing the work/self-care
  • How to carry on conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion with students of all grade levels.
  • How to include justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in the curriculum.
Workshop programming specifics will be announced in or before November, 2019.
