The Bronxville School's PTA
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee 

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

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, ethnicity, gender identity, and sexual orientation feel seen, heard and empowered. The committee will work on sourcing speakers on the topic of DEI for all 3 schools and will coordinate with the work of school leadership.

“Raising Racially Literate Children & Teaching What We Do Not Know” with Martha Haakmat
 Thursday, April 15th and Thursday, April 29th @ 7pm  Register Here

 

If you have you been caught off guard by a question or comment about race from your child and wondered how to raise children who have the knowledge, skills and tools to be members of an increasingly global and interconnected society, then…this workshop is not to be missed!!

 

Join Martha Haakmat for an interactive educational series offering parents tools and strategies for raising competent kids who will be best prepared for the world they’ll inherit, and who will shape it for the better with confidence and understanding.

 

Learn through conversations with other parents how the communities we create, the way we behave with one another and what we understand about ourselves as full people all contain lessons that we impart through our parenting.

Want to join? All school community members are welcome to join our committee. We are open to ideas on how to fulfill our mission. Please email one of the co-chairs.

The DEI Committee will highlight events through school-wide meetings, all-school
book/podcast/articles, the PTA’s social media pages and bringing relevant experts and 
Speakers on varying topics to the parent community.
