Thriving Together

The Summit’s theme is Thriving Together through Connection, Belonging, and Healing.

The inaugural SEL & Wellness Summit will be a transformative event for educators across California — reminding us of our collective capacity to bring a brighter future to California’s students and educators.

Who’s Coming?

The Summit will bring together California's SEL “Catalyzers”—the leaders and practitioners responsible for advancing equity-focused social and emotional learning across the state through the CalHOPE project, including:

  • California County Office of Education leaders focused on SEL
  • District and community SEL leaders
  • Focal school leaders and staff
  • Each California county will receive a guaranteed number of registrations with remaining registrations open to California’s education workforce.

Why Attend?

As educators, we know that a sense of belonging is crucial to the social and emotional well-being of our students… as well as ourselves. The Summit will be a welcoming, inclusive, and joyful experience that will provide space for all of us to connect and collaborate, and create a community of support and understanding through small group touch points and human-centered design. Educators will expand their network of support to help them navigate the ongoing challenges of teaching and leading in today's educational environment.

Where Do I Stay?

We have secured discounted room rates for Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3 at the Hyatt Regency and the Sheraton Grand in Sacramento. Due to the citywide shortage of rooms on Wednesday night, we strongly suggest arrival on Thursday.
