SLIDE Leadership Development Program

Harvard-Westlake School’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion enthusiastically announces the Student Leaders for Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (SLIDE) Leadership Development Program (LDP). The program provides a unique opportunity for students from participating independent, public, charter, online, religious, and all other school types in grades 10-12 in 2023-24 to gather for fellowship, leadership development, courageous conversations, and the creation of a sustainable action plan around topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and belonging.
