    As California's new law about pay transparency approaches, many schools are preparing for challenging conversations about faculty and staff compensation.  Whether colleagues are comparing their salaries for the first time, or whether there is just a renewed and heightened interest in the topic, school administrators, business officers and HR personnel need to be ready to respond to questions. Join renowned psychologist and independent school expert Rob Evans to consider why the topic can be so fraught, and learn some approaches that may help employees to feel they are appreciated and treated fairly.

    10:00 am - 10:50 am

    In this unique workshop led by Chameleon Associates, an international security consulting firm that specializes in school security, you and others in your group will plan an attack against a school. The goal of this workshop is for you to begin thinking like the enemy so that you can assess your school through the eyes of the adversary. Adversarial based security is the best way to secure your school, but it requires you to learn how to think like the enemy. Once you think that way, you will be able to imagine the different kinds of attacks that could happen against your school, recognize them early, and set your security team to defend against them. The goal: mitigate the attack before it ever takes place.
