Tara Haskins – Founding School Leader at Kansas City Girls Preparatory Academy

“A space where African American and Latinx leaders can connect, learn, grow, and be their authentic selves means more to me than words can express. As an Afro-Latina School Leader, I often believe I am in this work alone. Surge is a beautiful reminder that I am not alone and that I have a community to support me through all things. By taking time to connect with myself and others, I am able to lead from a place of love. Love of self and love of the community that I serve.”
