About The Conference

A Two Day Mind Shifting Experience

rIDEALS is excited to present the first Synergy Conference, a virtual two-day experiential learning event designed for P-20 education community to further their learning and understanding of practicing antiracism to foster healthy and inclusive school communities. Originally developed for associated members of the 36 College-Ready Math Initiative (CRMI) cohort schools, rIDEALs is proud to extend this opportunity to all education members. You can now join hundreds of others who have already made a commitment to personal and professional growth to benefit peers and students!

The Synergy Conference culminates a three-month-long rIDEALS Summer Intensive Program and reinforces the summer learning that program participants gained through focus groups and one-on-one coaching training. Built upon the topics of Racial Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Access, Leadership & Service (rIDEALS), the Synergy Conference will bring together these ideas together in a final presentation of training, storytelling, and collective learning.

 

The Synergy Conference and Summer Intensive Program was made possible through a generous grant from College Spark, Washington and is endorsed by the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Schools. CRMI partners are granted free access. Please check with your school administrators for your access code!
