Description


The conference Moving Past Failed Outcomes for Students, and into MODELS of SUCCESS through Cultural Practices that are Relevant, is an opportunity for professionals, practitioners, and specialists to develop skills by listening and applying a multitude of perspectives. When we are able to hear unique voices , challenge old Ideas and change the narrative, we become open to new solutions and opportunities.

The conference will provide workshops that highlight the followin:

Content that represents voices in the field of Education or Human Services that are not often heard, but important to the advancement of our schools and communities. Offer Innovative curriculum and /or practices that support the learning and growth of our most underserved students and families.The conference will present diverse voices and strengths-based, action-oriented solutions that will help participants move their schools, neighborhoods, communities and states forward.

Successful engagement of students and families depends on the practitioners ability to navigate by listening and applying a multitude of perspectives. It is one thing to study, research , or appreciate the “other”, it is another to genuinely hear their voices- voices we may not have heard before , but are important to Moving our community , our society forward . Valuing the power of diverse voices leads to more authentic relationships and collaboration. When we are able to hear unique voices , accept norms that may differ from our own without judgement , challenge old Ideas and change the narrative, we become open to new solutions and opportunities. Diverse voices hold the power to awaken our communities , but diverse voices without shared commitment is a harsh discordant mixture of sounds , and lacks the power to meet challenges together . We would like to extend our shared commitment to lift up voices that have created or demonstrated successful models of practice to lift our underserved populations by creating an environment that not only students but families can thrive. Forward, Upward and Onward Together; Diverse Voices Shared Commitment !
