North Cross School is excited to welcome Dr. Gene Batiste, Diversity and Inclusion Advisor/Strategist, to Roanoke on Wednesday, August 17, 2016.
Throughout the day, Dr. Batiste will work with faculty and staff on classroom inclusion practices in order to ensure that students from all backgrounds have a meaningful learning experience at North Cross.
Recognizing that the importance of this topic extends beyond our campus, North Cross is offering the opportunity for the greater Roanoke community to attend Dr. Batiste’s evening presentation. This event is free and open to the public and media. It will be held at the North Cross campus at 6:30 p.m. in Fishburn Auditorium .
Dr. Batiste has over 20 years of experience in providing consultation and training in the areas of diversity and inclusion, leadership, and trust development. He will explain the best ways to create more inclusive environments and foster stronger communication about race and ethnicity.
