“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.  

The conference addresses How to Combat Implicit Bias in Our Schools and will feature Keynote Speaker Jerry Kang on February 8, 2020, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM. Note that registration for this conference is now closed. Contact Maddie Cargas if you have questions.

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.
