Twenty-three Germantown Academy Middle School students visited The Haverford School to participate in the 2017 Middle School Diversity Conference, which brought together over 400 students from four different states. During the conference, students learned about lines of difference (race, gender, disability, etc.) and how to make connections across these lines and take action.
"The focus of the conference was Brave or Blind," said Middle School Health and Wellness Department Head Jay Wright. "Students throughout the day worked to learn and develop advocacy skills which they can bring back to their schools to help build community."
The keynote speaker was DeVon Jackson, who is the Association Director of Intercultural Affairs at Villanova University.
