Well-Being, Equity & Recovery Recap

4th Annual SEL Summit

Well-Being, Equity & Recovery

July 21 & 22, 2021


Bummed you missed out? It’s Not Too Late!

We came together last week to learn, to share, to inspire and be inspired. Collectively we’ve accomplished more in the name of SEL than any one of us alone could have dreamed! The SEL Summit is evidence of that teamwork and connection; it represents years of effort, professionalism, and wisdom-through-experience packed into two days with over 70 sessions! Congratulations one and all for another wonderful Summit!!

In case you weren’t able to attend these dynamic presentations live, you can still catch them On-Demand until August 31!

Great day! Full of wonderful information and lots of takeaways!

Incredible speakers! Wonderful tone of diversity and acceptance.

I honestly love doing this in the comfort of my home and the ability to go back to recorded sessions is amazing.

I received a new perspective on what other schools are dealing with.

I loved his presentation and the passion behind his idea. It gave me many ways to rethink this upcoming school year.

“I like the idea of changing our mindsets from one size fits all mentality to understand that each child has different needs and learns different ways and we need to think more of equity.

I enjoyed information on the specific cultural values paired with recommended approaches to avoid offending individuals.
