NAIS Keynote Event: The Science of Active Inclusion

To engage in productive conversations in indepedent school communities and lead more inclusively, it helps to take a step back and understand the science behind human interaction and learn specific habits that bring people together. 

To kick off the 2021-22 NAIS conference season and to provide deep insights on this topic, NAIS hosted a community-wide online keynote on October 6, 2021. The event, "The Science of Active Inclusion," featured master facilitators Ric Oslin and Camille Inge of the NeuroLeadership Institute (NLI). 

The session explored the theory and tools of active inclusion, including:
  • aligning on the real-world purpose of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); 
  • better understanding how the brain detects and responds to threat;  
  • learning emotional regulation strategies to respond to difficult situations; and 
  • exploring specific habits of leading inclusively.
You can watch the full recording below through January 4, 2022.
