From youth social justice programs to educators’ trainings on creating more inclusive classrooms to facilitated community dialogues, our organization reaches thousands of people annually through our work. The American Conference on Diversity’s vision is to create and enhance a society that embraces social justice for us all. Our work values diversity, educates and empowers leaders, and promotes inclusion and respect in schools, workplaces, and communities. The journey to make a difference begins with your continued commitment to become part of the difference. Our work with educators:
Introduces concepts of diversity, inclusion, and multicultural education to families and teachers
Engages participants in experiential learning and large group discussions about how diversity and social justice identities affect them as individuals, and the impact these have on their ability to best support their children/students
Provides tangible strategies for having difficult conversations around diversity with young people, and empowers participants to engage their children/students in dialogue around the diversity they experience everyday
Offers a roadmap for educators to use as followup and ongoing education for the yearlong diversity initiative, including key resources and recommended activities.

I thought that this was the most valuable conference that i have attended this year. The facilitators were fantastic. Their inclusion of all participants was wonderful. The material covered was not only informative, but also extremely helpful.
The Educators’ Institutes I attended were informational and provided me with the tools I need to face the problems that come with urban education in a multicultural setting. The American Conference on Diversity Educators’ Institutes have paved the way for me, as a teacher, to begin to do something about the educational gap that exists in my classroom. I am fortunate to have learned many valuable lessons and I have continued to direct this information to other teachers in my department.
