Glenn Eric Singleton has devoted over thirty years to constructing racial equity worldwide and developing leaders to do the same. He is the author of Courageous Conversations About Race books; creator of a protocol for sustained and deep interracial dialogue; and facilitator of Beyond Diversity, a curriculum that teaches people how to talk about race and address racial disparities. As founder and president of Pacific Educational Group, Inc., Singleton has created an agency that has developed racially conscious leaders in a variety of sectors: education, government, business, law enforcement, and community organizing among them. In September 2015, the United States Embassy selected PEG to guide law enforcement leaders throughout Western Australia. In March 2016, Singleton launched the first Institute for Courageous Conversation in Auckland, New Zealand. Singleton’s passion for equity flows to and through his civic life as well. He is the founder of the Foundation for a College Education of East Palo Alto, California, an agency responsible for the collegiate admission and graduation of hundreds of students. Accolades for his work include The 100 Black Men of the Bay Area Community Service Award in 2015 and The Eugene T. Carothers Human Relations Award in 2003. Singleton earned his B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and his M.A. from Stanford University.
Learning Forward offers a unique conference experience for educators looking to improve their practice, regardless of the role they play in their organizations. The sense of community that the conference provides and value of the time spent learning in community is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced at other conferences.— Anne Conzemius, SMART Learning Systems
As a first-year instructional coach, this conference gave me much to reflect upon as I head into the second half of the year. Hearing from others who have been on my journey was inspiring and energizing.— 2017 Conference Attendee
