About the Summit This summit promises engaging discussions, workshops, and collaborations that emphasize measuring success beyond traditional metrics. Set against the backdrop of Black History Month, the event also holds additional significance as we aim to honor and highlight the contributions of the Black community to our educational landscape.

Elevating Student Voice We believe in the power of our youth, and are proud to announce that students will not only be taking the stage for panel discussions but also showcasing their talents through performances. Experience firsthand the passion, intelligence, and vibrancy they bring to our educational community.
