Carney Connections

We are proud to have brought out DEI programming to the West Coast!

Thank you for joining us for Carney Connections: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in San Francisco on March 5. We hosted a group of school leaders, administrators, diversity practitioners, and educators for a day of rich DEI programming that FORUM/Diversity is known for, in a smaller setting and led by expert school leaders and diversity practitioners. We look forward to continuing Carney Connections events in the future.
