The Symposium

Beacon’s Annual Symposium on Race and Class in Education

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Thank you for Attending our 12th Annual Symposium!

For over a decade, Beacon Academy has annually brought together a select group of our alumni who honestly and courageously discuss their experiences with hopes of making it better for more kids like them. In 2017, Beacon added in the voices of leadership as well as solution-oriented workshops. Audience members were encouraged to share their perspectives in a town-hall style forum and continue the conversation over lunch. Workshops provided an opportunity to turn theory into practice in areas such as socio-emotional support, admissions, policy creation, and family advocacy. Here’s what attendees had to say about their experience in a Word Cloud:
