Our students can serve as our greatest change agents when we lean in and listen to their stories and experiences. This workshop will discuss ways to amplify student voice within the education system so that we can serve as transformational leaders, creating compassionate cultures of care that strive to meet the needs of all learners. Kristi will share how Surrey Schools is amplifying student voice to inform decisions and strengthen connections. Participants will have an opportunity to connect with one another and share ideas across districts.
