DEI Parent Interest Groups Launched

November 18, 2020

On Tuesday, November 10, we launched this year’s diversity, equity, and inclusion or DEI parent groups. We began as a whole group to acknowledge our common dedication to engaging with one another on topics related to social identity and social bias. Following that heartwarming start, folks spent time in groups focused on social identity commonalities.

We are very grateful to those who facilitated the small groups. Each interest group will determine its schedule of meetings going forward. If you were unable to attend the first gathering, please contact the facilitator below to learn when the group you’d like to join will hold its next meeting.
