Empowerment and Engagement Coalition Conference

Students Embrace Diversity with Peers at Other Schools
The 2018 Empowerment and Engagement Conference at The Village School was an opportunity for African-American young women from local independent schools to gather, share experiences and challenges, and celebrate their resilience, determination, and intelligence! 
They participated in such workshops as “Who Am I: Leadership and Navigating the Independent School Bubble,” “Math, Science, and the Burden of Representation,” and “Social Media: How to Represent Your Best Self in the Age of #selfies.”
