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.

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.
