Entrepreneur and author Krystal Hardy Allen is taking her message of diversity, equity, and inclusion on the road. Next month,  the CEO and founder of K. Allen Consulting will kick off her first national book tour for her book What Goes Unspoken: How School Leaders Address DEI Beyond Race. Drawing on her own experiences as a school teacher, principal, and current international educational consultant, Allen teaches and provides resources to education leaders and administrators on how to concretely center DEI within their practices and policies. “I want to help readers better understand their role as a leader within their school or district's DEI work and how the intrapersonal work they do also influences key decisions that can lead to a more inclusive and equitable school or district,” says Allen. What Goes Unspoken is available for pre-order now from AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Books-A-Million
