Willow SweeneyFriday Keynote Presentation –The Case for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Andre Koen

This session will discuss the current environment and methods of creating school climates that insure quality access for all students. Every day there are financial, human resource, operational and purchasing decisions made in schools that impact the achievement and opportunity gap. Looking at our commonalities and differences, and the role of culture, gives us the perspective to close this gap.
