2023 PoCC Highlights

Thank you for joining us in St. Louis, MO, for the 2023 NAIS People of Color Conference, Student Diversity Leadership Conference, and PoCC Heads' Summit. More than 8,000 adults and students from independent schools across the country gathered to learn, collaborate, and support one another. Here’s a look at some of the many memorable moments.

Keep the energy and support going throughout the year:
