I am excited to serve as Portledge School’s Coordinator of Diversity and Inclusion. As a diversity practitioner, I am honored to support Portledge’s mission and vision which engage every member of the community in a commitment to equity, social justice, and intercultural awareness, as outlined in our current Strategic Plan.
Portledge seeks to nurture an inclusive and diverse school community that embraces differences and views issues from multiple perspectives. We aim to promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of diversity and inclusion on and off campus, as well as to increase multicultural competencies throughout the school community. A commitment to diversity and inclusion entails acceptance, respect and an authentic and empowered participation.
The Diversity Coordinator is responsible for the development and leadership of intercultural education activities, training, and programs. I collaborate with members of all three divisions, as well as with parents and staff. Embracing each others’ differences not only makes us stronger and wiser, but it also helps us to appreciate how each individual in our community is unique. I invite you to join us as we strive to open minds and hearts, build character, and create an environment where each and every community member can thrive.
