Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
What is the DEI Committee?
The Bronxville School PTA has created a school-wide DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Committee. The Mission of the DEI Committee is to encourage an environment amongst the school community where members from diverse backgrounds based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, or age feel seen, heard and empowered.
We strive to meet our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion by sharing, listening and learning and applying these ideas to the school community.
The committee will work in parallel with the school’s curriculum to offer parents resources, bring relevant experts to speak and help recognize the diversity within our own community. This parallel learning and sharing will help to create a home-school connection.
What do we mean by Diversity, Equity and Inclusion?
Diversity is the presence of differences that may include but not limited to race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, or age.
Equity is promoting justice, impartiality and fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems.
Inclusion is an outcome to ensure those that are diverse actually feel and/or are welcomed
