BIPOC Voices Summit

Share Your Voice!

BIPOC Voices is a program, created by POCIS Seattle, that brings together educators of color (teachers, school counselors, and administrators) working in our member schools. In BIPOC Voices, educators share ideas, offer support and encouragement, and discuss ways for our respective schools to implement the ideas and approaches shared by guest speakers and other leaders in DEI-related work.

In fall and spring, POCIS Seattle hosts a BIPOC Voices Summit. See below for more information.

Member schools can find event resources at the Resources for Educators page. Please ask your POCIS representative for the password.
