SLIDE Leadership Development Program

Harvard-Westlake School’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion enthusiastically announces the inaugural Student Leaders for Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (SLIDE) Leadership Development Program (LDP), launching Summer 2022. 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 2022-23 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.

If you currently work with student leaders at your school to develop and enhance their leadership skills and practices around DEI, we’d like to connect with you!
