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.
This conference is an invaluable experience for anyone involved in promoting professional learning! I commend Learning Forward for their attention to detail and ensuring that a variety of professional perspectives were well-represented in the session offerings!— David Holden
This was the first conference in a long time that I left feeling like I had grown professionally. Often times conferences are full of “infomercials” for products but don’t provide me with knowledge and skills that I can implement immediately. Thank you for challenging my thinking and inspiring me!— Dawn Spurlock
