An Update from Sacred Heart Greenwich - 6.18.20

Tonight, Sacred Heart Greenwich will share the "Media for Social Change" panel discussion that took place on Tuesday evening with the community via email, social media, and on our website. The panel, which was organized by alumna Sadé Clacken Joseph '07 and featured six other alumnae, discussed their experiences at Sacred Heart, how they each use media personally and professionally to impart change, and specific changes they'd like to see made at Sacred Heart Greenwich in the future to improve both the overall student experience and specifically the Black student experience. If you were unable to join us, please watch this extremely important conversation tonight.

The School recognizes that not all alumnae, parents, students, faculty and staff will feel comfortable sharing details about incidents of racism at Sacred Heart Greenwich openly. With that in mind, we have created an anonymous Google Form for community members to share questions, concerns, feedback, and stories. We are also listening carefully to stories being shared by people of color within our community on @blackatshg on Instagram. The equity@cshct.org email address that launched after Tuesday's alumnae panel is another outlet for sharing questions, stories, and feedback. Additionally, if you'd like to set up an appointment to speak with incoming Head of School Meg Frazier or another administrator directly, please send an email to equity@cshct.org.

The Board of Trustees and Mrs. Frazier are committed to Goal 3, a social awareness which impels to action. Tomorrow, the Board will share an initial set of antiracism action items and target deadlines for those items with the entire community. These action items are a direct result of ideas proposed by our students, alumnae, parents, and faculty and staff that have been shared with the administration during Zoom calls, panel conversations, and direct email correspondence. There is much more work to be done. As outlined in our statement on June 7, the School is committed to this work and will continue to communicate our evolving action plan.
