At the Heart of Our Identity: Being Episcopal, Being Inclusive
An NAES conference on Episcopal identity, equity, and inclusion
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.
The Purpose of This Conference
