Diversity and Technology practitioners are innovators who can make a meaningful impact on a school's ability to fulfill its mission despite sometimes being on the periphery. In independent schools, technology integration and efforts to increase diversity and equity are moving quickly from the periphery to somewhere close to the mission. Leadership at schools support both departments but may not feel knowledgeable in either. Teachers can see the initiatives of each department as a diversion from the main goals of a classroom. But students may be more facile with both than the previous generations while parents may be resources to both departments. Each departments are often led by self-starters without clear portfolios. Practitioners are often isolated at their schools and have to seek out conference and other gathering to grow professionally. Opportunities for cooperation, collaboration, and innovation between the two departments should yield outcomes that are invaluable to the school community.
