AWSNA Regional Conference: Reimagining Diversity

March 11 - 12, Emerson Waldorf School, Chapel Hill, NC

Waldorf Schools began with more than a pedagogical impulse.  From their origin they also carried a mission for social renewal, and this conference serves as a guide to inspire educators to take on some of today’s most pressing social challenges.

Keynote presenter Dr. Sonya Horsford, critical race scholar and educational leadership specialist, will be joined by more than 16 presenters from Waldorf schools and other settings.
