Social Justice Day was envisioned as a way to bring the entire Chadwick community together around important topics and issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
This K-12 mini-conference was an opportunity for Chadwick to pursue its equity and inclusion goals, and connect those goals to our Mission, Core Values and Core Competencies. Diversity, equity and inclusion thought leaders, including Dr. Bettina Love and Roger Q. Mason, joined as keynote speakers.
Our youngest students had the opportunity to work with animator David Heredia on celebrating "Little Heroes of Color," and to create their own representations of social justice. Our Middle and Upper School students led and chose from over 25 interactive workshops, such as "How to Create Compassion With a Neurodiversity Lens," "Finding the Middle Ground: Interfaith Discussions on Personal Experience" and "BIPOC Representation in Media: A Workshop By Diversify Our Narrative.
We are grateful to everyone who made this event possible and look forward to continuing these critical conversations.
