Description

The Let's Talk Racism Conference is intended to give K-12 educators and pre-service teachers an opportunity to engage in sessions centered on the impact of systemic racism and ways of dismantling it in our schools. This year's theme is Moving Beyond Good Intentions.

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. John B. Diamond, co-author of Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools, will be delivering the keynote address. Dr. Diamond is the Kellner Family Distinguished Chair in Urban Education in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis and a faculty affiliate in the Departments of Afro-American Studies and Educational Policy Studies at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

During the conference, breakout sessions will be facilitated on a number of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Advocacy for students of color

  • Disrupting systemic racism in education
