FORUM/Diversity

Virtual FORUM/Diversity: January 24-29, 2022

Hiring Event + Professional Development

Both a hiring conference and a professional development symposium, the goal of FORUM/Diversity is twofold: to help those from underrepresented groups find their best-fit jobs, and to offer robust professional development around topics of equity and inclusion in schools.

The hiring portion consists of consecutive 30-minute interview periods between job-seeking Carney Sandoe candidates and hiring schools from across the country. Interviews are pre-scheduled by schools ahead of the event.

The event also features robust professional development sessions facilitated by renowned keynote speakers, diversity practitioners, and school leaders. Attendees are given the opportunity to learn best practices and find inspiration from the stories shared and lessons learned.

FORUM/Diversity: CS&A's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
We believe it's important to host this conference because of the many common themes that unite even the most disparate independent schools: the need for quality teachers and motivated students, the desire to produce students of integrity as well as intellect, and the tension between progress and tradition. Diversity is an ever-important issue for schools and candidates, an issue that we are committed to through strategies like this event.
