Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC)
Georgetown Day School is proud and dedicated to send a number of students to NAIS’ Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) each year, which correlates to our school’s deep commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Social Justice. The Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) is an inclusive, multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders from around the country. SDLC focuses on self-reflection, allyship, and community building. Led by a diverse team of trained adult and peer facilitators, participants will develop an appreciation of their own identities, build effective cross-cultural communication skills, better understand the nature and development of effective strategies for social justice, and practice expression through the arts, while networking with their peers.
