We are committed to the professional development of our faculty and educational advancement of our students in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion. We have a long, consistent history of sending a faculty and student cohort to the annual National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) People of Color Conference
and the simultaneous Student Diversity Leadership Conference. Ransom Everglades also has hosted practitioners from High Resolves
(a national leader in diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting) to work with our students, faculty, administration and trustees. Since the summer of 2019, faculty and administration have participated in the NAIS People of Color Conference, the University of Miami School of Business Diversity and Inclusion Conference, the Georgetown Certificate in Strategic Diversity and Inclusion Management, the NAIS Diversity Leadership Institute, Council for Spiritual and Ethical Education's Conflict Management Seminar, the Gardener Carey Leadership Institute, the Stanley King Institute, and the following courses: "Leading for Excellence and Equity" (Harvard Graduate School of Education), "Teaching Civics, Identity, and Action" (Facing History), "Black Writers in American History" (Gilder Lehrman Institute) and "Anti-Oppression Teaching and Leading in Schools" (Klingenstein Institute). The faculty and administration jointly read Between the World and Me
