Sunday Opening General Session Speaker


Roni Habib

Founder of EQ Schools, public speaker, educator, Leadership + Emotional Intelligence consultant

Teaching to the Human Core by Investing in Our Wellbeing and Personal Growth

 We’ve been through quite a ride in this past year and there has never been a more important time to invest in our wellbeing and personal growth. Tending to our wellbeing is also the best thing that we can do for our loved ones and our students. Using Positive Psychology and Applied Mindfulness tools we’ll explore how to have more energy and more fun, how to self regulate in the face of adversity, and we will reconnect with our power and resilience. This will be an experiential keynote so get ready to have fun, learn a bunch, be active, and reconnect to your purpose and passion. 

Roni Habib is an expert in helping leaders, educators, and parents become happier, more resilient, more connected to their purpose, and more playful. The founder of EQ Schools, he leads workshops and speaks in organizations nationally and abroad. Early in his career, Roni struggled with the high stresses and demands of teaching even losing touch with why he wanted to be a teacher in the first place. It was so painful that he finally discovered the power of integrating mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and positive psychology in his own life as well as in his classroom and felt called to share this new approach with the world. In the first four years of establishing EQ Schools, Roni has taught and inspired thousands of teachers, principals, superintendents, and parents. Prior to earning his Masters of Education and teaching credential at Harvard University, he lived in Israel and Belgium. Most importantly though, Roni has a huge heart and loves helping people.


General Session Speaker


Angela Webster

Associate Vice President for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion,

Associate Professor of Leadership Studies, Coach, & Author.

LIVE, LOVE, LEARN, LEAD & LAUGH.


Are You Moving Through the World Inclusively or Exclusively?

The lifelong processes integral to understanding our individual identities while being respectful of the identities of every person around us influence how we move through the world. One of those processes is reflection, both proactive and responsive. Reflection is critical to living with purpose, intention, and positive impact since we do not learn from simply having experiences, we learn from reflecting upon them. This session offers effective ways to move through the world more inclusively and less exclusively, personally and professionally. Together we will explore the presence and power of our beliefs, thoughts, emotions, attitudes, words, and actions to promote energizing connections and meaningful relationships.

Dr. Webster is a person of grace, grit, and gratitude. She aspires to see the art in each heart and the gold in each soul. She is an educator, a licensed school administrator, and a PhD in educational psychology. The defining moment of witnessing the final speech of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. clinched her desire to lead in ways that contribute to human flourishing and alleviate human suffering. To those ends, she has served PK-12 as founding school principal, designer of a public charter school, consultant, executive coach, and school board member. She has served higher education at PWIs, an HBCU, an art college, and a college for women in the Middle East. Currently, Dr. Webster serves as Associate Vice President for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Central Arkansas and maintains the academic rank of Associate Professor of Leadership Studies. She has children and grand candies who bring her great joy.

Continued Conversation: Institutional Racism in Education and Educator Fragility

In August 2020, an ongoing dialogue entitled, “Institutional Racism in Education: Truth, Trust, Courage and Empowerment Listen, Learn, and Share” was initiated. Following up and continuing this dialogue, this session furthers and builds on this theme by exploring fragility, whiteness, and cultural competence. Their connections in/for addressing racism and the conundrums associated with them for educator preparation, educator self-efficacy and dispositions are discussed. The “Truth, Trust, Courage and Empowerment” highlighted in the initial sessions is metaphorically framed within the concept of educator fragility.
