AFS Students Host Diversity Conference

For several years now, Upper School students from AFS have been teaming up with their peers at the Perkiomen School to host the student-led Mid Atlantic Regional Diversity Conference.

This conference is designed for Upper School students interested in exploring issues of identity (sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, age, ability, socio-economic status, gender, and religion). Activities encourage students to build community and lean into discomfort. Participants are led by a diverse group of trained Upper School facilitators working in large and small groups as well as affinity groups.

“This experience gives our students the extraordinary opportunity to showcase the diversity work that is at the fabric of who we are as a school with other schools in the area,” says AFS Director of Diversity and Inclusion Toni Williamson. “For so many students the work that is done that day is transformative.”
