Michael Hernandez, assistant superintendent of the Appleton Area School District, will moderate a panel titled “Re-Tooling DEI: New approaches to equity and inclusion in our work spaces” at the Northeast Wisconsin Leadership Summit at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Center in Green Bay on Tuesday, May 9.

The event the first of its kind in Northeast Wisconsin, intended to gather the region’s most influential people of color and allies for professional development, networking and community building. We’ll have more than a dozen panel discussions on business, leadership, education and much more!
