10 York County school districts kicked off the Leadership for Diverse Schools
Thirty-six teachers and administrators representing 10 York County school districts kicked off the Leadership for Diverse Schools (LDS) class of 2022 with a weekend retreat. LDS is a nine-month, experiential leadership development program exploring personal bias and learning to interact more effectively with diverse populations of students, parents, and colleagues. The program, presented in partnership with the York Jewish Community Center, fosters understanding, acceptance, and tolerance so the educators can be leaders in helping to build culturally proficient communities within their districts.
Leadership York’s mission is to train, connect, and inspire individuals to serve the York community in leadership positions. The organization was founded in 1978 and boasts over 4,100 graduates from its six programs. Those graduates provide leadership to more than 250 nonprofit organizations and serve thousands of constituents in state and local government. Leadership York is the primary resource for developing inspired leadership for our changing community. For more information, visit leadershipyork.org.
