Issues of cultural competence, diversity, equity and inclusion impact all members of independent schools and have greater consequences for persons of color who work and learn in these communities.
However, despite these ubiquitous challenges there is no professional organization for those dedicated to the nuanced and high energy work of the equity and inclusion professional. This means that each person who works in this important area of school life is left to fend for themselves without support from others doing this work. In contrast, there is a CAIS professional group for financial officers, guidance counselors, counselors, learning specialists, admissions officers, etc.
POCIS is offering this space for professionals formally charged to lead institutions regarding issues of cultural competence, diversity, equity and inclusion. Accomplishing this endeavor will lead to stronger education professionals to help lead better schools.
