Speaker Series

Through the BCIL Speaker Series, students learn from professionals in an interactive format and engage with real world challenges and solutions.

This program, envisioned and manifested by our students, offers one-of-a-kind access to relatable professionals making their original and creative mark in a variety of fields. The intimate setting provides opportunities for thoughtful Q&A and project challenges, where Middle and Upper School students collaborate, brainstorm, and get feedback in real time.
"Through our Speaker Series discussion on gentrification and the importance of investing and having pride in communities, we as students had the chance to consider realities of the Californian experience many of us are not confronted with. Ms. Morgan and Mr. Miller were inspiring and genuine examples of the power of brave thinking and societal awareness." — Paula S. '21
