Baruti Kafele – Joining us LIVE from Jersey City, New Jersey
Is My School Better BECAUSE I Lead It?
A self-reflected journey for school leaders challenging each to examine their own leadership identity, presence, impact, mission, purpose, vision, and value as the leader of their school. Participants will be engaged in a discussion on whether their leadership practices enable their learners to have optimal learning opportunities in barrier-free, culturally-responsive learning environments. It will also challenge participants to think critically about how they perceive their own leadership worth to their school communities compared to how their school communities might perceive their leadership, with a particular emphasis on whether their leadership practices ensure that equity abounds for all learners.

Closing Keynote: Friday, June 18, 2021 at 10:30a – 11:30a
Dr. Rick Rigsby – Joining us LIVE from Dallas, Texas
The Responsibility of Leaders in a Time of Uncertainty
With the unprecedented times we currently find ourselves in each day, Dr. Rigsby feels now, more than ever, the need to uplift, inspire and bring a message of HOPE to educators.
