How to Survive and Grow in Independence Schools

NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) November 29th to December 3rd, 2021

On-Demand Video: First-Generation DEI Practitioners – How to Survive and Grow in Independence Schools.  

In this presentation, First-Generation DEI Practitioners share lessons learned during their 20 + years in Independent Schools. Panelists, including PoCC co-founder, Randolph Carter, share their motivation for getting started in Independent Schools, what they believe has changed or stayed the same over the last several decades, and what must happen in the future to effectively serve our current and future populations.

This presentation Will be followed by a series of monthly interactive lunch webinars beginning in January where we can hear directly from you, the current practitioners, to provide support and deeper discussions. We will also include student voices as well as alumni, parents, and other guest panelists. Our sessions are scheduled at noon on the 2nd Friday of the month beginning January 14th with alumni voices. Contact Steve Davis at for information on how to register or if you would like a free viewing of the on-demand video. 

This on-demand video will be offered at the start of the conference and will be available throughout the event to view at any time. The session will be made available for viewing for 30 days after the conference
