“I experienced the Pollyanna Conference model at the Dalton School and know the power of school communities coming together to tackle DEI initiatives. I hope you will join us for the Bay Area inaugural Pollyanna conference at Town School for Boys.” ~ Lorri Hamilton Durbin, Head of School
On February 8, 2020 Town School for Boys will host a conference in conjunction with the non-profit organization Pollyanna* which will enhance diversity, equity and inclusion work at your school.  

We invite Bay Area K-8 schools to attend the Pollyanna Conference: How to Combat Implicit Bias in Our Schools with Keynote Speaker Jerry Kang on February 8, 2020, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM. Registration price per school is set at $1500 per School POD, with a maximum of 15 attendees per school. You do not need to have your POD set when you register; we will ask for a list of your POD members in January 2020.

Pollyanna is structured a bit differently than other conferences. Each school will be represented as a School POD, which includes individuals who play a role in advancing the diversity discussion at your school. We ask that you send two members from each of the following constituent groups, if possible: administrators, alumni, diversity coordinators, faculty, parents, 6th-8th grade students, and trustees.
