Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
DEI work is hard work. But it’s also joyous. Because really, at its core, DEI work at GA is about supporting each student through the journey of identity formation, giving them language and skills to articulate exactly who they are, and making them feel loved, respected, and seen for exactly who they are.
Theme & Focus
The DEI theme for the 2020-21 school year is 2020 Vision: Examining our Lenses and the focus of our programming—for the entire GA community—is on identity work.
You don’t have to be very old to understand feelings of fairness and justice. In the Lower School, DEI themes are woven into our day, from activities and monthly read-alouds to exploring issues at assembly.
