BOLD Summit

The Galloway School, Atlanta, GA
March 20-22, 2024

Less than one percent of all K-12 schools in the US have a person of color in the role of Head of School, and Galloway is one of those schools. In 2016, Galloway made a conscious decision to advance the conversation around leadership opportunities for people of color by launching a special initiative called The BOLD Summit (Building Opportunities for Leadership Development). It is an annual gathering of passionate educators of color looking to grow in their careers and impact education through leadership in an independent school. BOLD Summit is focused on equipping educators of color with the tools and confidence needed to become the BOLD leaders of the future.
