What’s the Equity Symposium?

The Equity Symposium is an opportunity to learn from each other with a focus on racial equity. Attendees will participate in a session focused on implicit bias and will select an additional 90 minute session to attend. Our colleagues from Highline and beyond will present on a range of topics to challenge us to deepen our capacity for equity.
