NYSAIS Diversity, Equity, and Justice


Comprised of volunteers from NYSAIS schools, the NYSAIS Diversity Committee is dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in school communities. This committee celebrated its 25th anniversary in the Fall of 2023, and is the longest-standing committee to focus on DEI work in any state or regional organization in the independent school world. The committee annually organizes and delivers professional learning events: the School Professionals of Color (SPoC) Summit, the Diversity Symposium, the Diversity Practitioners Conference (3-day residential conference), and the LGBTQIA+ Summit. The committee also serves as an important thought partner with NYSAIS in areas of accreditation and professional learning.
