Diversity Symposium

Thanks to all who attended our 2018 Diversity Symposium! More information about the 2019 event coming soon. 

The 2018 Diversity Symposium explored issues around race and green space in Chicago. How have historical biases shaped Chicago’s green spaces and, by extension, our communities? What are local organizations doing to make recreation and nature more accessible? How is green space being used to foster social change?

About the Diversity Symposium

Ancona welcomes educators, parents, school leadership, and community members to this morning, half-day event. Refreshments will be provided. A special Kids Track allows children to engage with the theme via activities led by Ancona teachers and parents. 

The annual Diversity Symposium honors the Ancona School’s longstanding commitment to social justice and multicultural education by bringing noted scholars and activists to campus to address issues of diversity and identity.
