Equity and Inclusion
Celebrating Diversity - Video Series
Safe and Inclusive Schools are proud to present the video series “Celebrating Diversity in Grand Erie” The resilience of the individuals in the four video stories, matched with the passion and dedication of our staff, is truly a celebration of the successes of our Grand Erie students, the diversity of our Grand Erie community and our commitment to equity.
We hope that these videos will create many opportunities for rich conversations in your life, with your staff, colleagues, family, and friends. We hope that conversations about diversity will help us explore implicit biases and broaden understanding of others. We hope that you will have opportunity to challenge your own thinking, and the thinking expressed by others, when negative bias is expressed. Having courageous conversations with ourselves and others allows us to grow, as well as deconstruct ways of thinking that may contribute to negative assumptions about other human beings.
Becoming “bias aware” is a journey for everyone, and we are all in a different place in that journey. It is through self-reflection, courageous conversations and culturally responsive pedagogy that we are able to create school spaces where our students, parents, and our staff, feel not only included, but valued.
