Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our Mission in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Faculty and board members collaborated on this official diversity statement for Annie Wright Schools. It was ratified by the Board of Trustees on February 28, 2020.
 
We acknowledge the fact of diversity as a vital source of Annie Wright Schools’ strong community. We recognize all identities as part of our diversity, including both under-represented and over-represented groups across ethnic, racial, and regional identities; language and learning profiles; religious and political beliefs; socio-economic and family make-ups; and gender and sexual identities. Among our community, we cultivate shared rights and mutual stewardship.  
 
We safeguard individual identities by recognizing that diversity alone does not lead to inclusion. We strive to develop practices to ensure all members of our community have access to safe, equitable, and brave spaces. We welcome opportunities to challenge cultural assumptions of what is “normal” and to broaden our sense of identity; seeking to actively advance the culture of the institution by continually examining the tension between tradition and transformation.
 
We nurture responsible, global citizenry in a pluralistic and rapidly changing world by encouraging and being willing to respectfully engage courageous conversations. We purposefully examine cultural distinctions and implications across programmatic and curricular practices. As an institution, we seek to practice on-going, reflective learning processes, including routine practices of self and community care.
 
The practices named above extend through all facets of our community, including but not limited to organizational structures such as institutional leadership, recruitment, admissions, hiring and retention; educational spaces such as curricular and extracurricular programming; as well as community partnerships and communications.

Strategic Plan for Diversity

The Strategic Plan for Diversity was adopted in early 2019. The plan outlines a vision for supporting all members of the Annie Wright Schools community and for developing robust Diversity, Inclusion and Equity programming. There are four general areas of attention, each with specific initiatives, components, and performance measures.

Throughout summer 2020 facilitated discussions are planned to discuss each publication, with deeper conversations to occur during August's faculty & staff in-service.
