SLIDE Leadership Development Program

Harvard-Westlake's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion along with Harvard-Westlake Summer are pleased to announce the inaugural Student Leaders for Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (SLIDE) Leadership Development Program (LDP) in June 2022. SLIDE LDP is an opportunity for students from participating schools in grades 9-12 to gather for fellowship and courageous conversations around topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion as well as to develop and enhance their own leadership skills and practices. Students will engage in programming designed specifically so that they will be able to return to their respective school communities equipped to strategize, organize, and advance the missions of their institutions around diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, belonging, and so much more.


Dates: Monday, June 20, 2022 to Wednesday, June 22, 2022
Format: SLIDE LDP is a residential program in Los Angeles. Students will reside in dorms close to Harvard-Westlake's Upper School Campus. Programming will take place at Harvard-Westlake Upper School.
Structure: The day will be divided into whole group activities and small affinity group sessions. Evening activities will continue community building among participants.

Chaperones will have a short orientation on Sunday, June 19, 2022


Registration will open on February 1, 2022. Space is first come, first served.  The cost will be announced when registration opens. Each participating school can bring up to 5 students, and each school must have one faculty/staff chaperone.
