About The Conference

Two Days of Mind Shifting Experience
12-4 PM PST
June 17 & 18, 2021

As a part of rIDEALS Summer Intensive Program, the virtual rIDEALS Synergy Conference will kick off a three-month-long learning experience for Washington State P-20 education community members who are in pursuit of adopting antiracist practices — both personally and professionally.

Designed to challenge principals, administrators, teachers, students, and families, the conference will introduce Racial Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, Leadership & Service (rIDEALS) topics of discussion. Participants will then have the opportunity to further their learning through various conferences, training, and one-on-one coaching sessions throughout the summer.


The conference and summer intensive program is open to all P-20 education community members. However, administrators, teachers, staff, CBOs, and volunteers associated with the 36 CRMI-cohort schools are able to attend most sessions and trainings complimentary, due to a generous grant from College Spark, Washington. That's a $1,000 per person value per person!


rIDEALS Synergy Conference will be pushed you to explore uncomfortable topics to grow your personal and professional capacity, as well as contribute and share your learnings. Each learning module allows for interaction, storytelling, shared and collective learning, as well as group and individual reflection and debriefing. In addition, you will leave with practical tools to support you and your school environment along your journey.
