Upper School Students Join Alumnae to Think Critically about Equity and Belonging

Upper School Students Join Alumnae to Think Critically about Equity and Belonging

On January 12, nineteen Upper School students joined with several alumnae to engage in important conversations about issues of equity. Together, students and alumnae discussed race and gender, and participated in an activity about ability and belonging. The event is part of Sacred Heart Greenwich’s commitment to building bridges between our young alumnae and current students, particularly alumnae and students of color. 

"The diversity event for students and college alumnae springs directly from our Goals- particularly Goals II, III and IV,” writes Kerry Bader, Director Of Mission Integration. “The event was an opportunity to think critically about issues of equity and belonging both here at SHG and globally. It allowed the girls to develop awareness around problems and build protocols for solutions. It also enabled our students and alumnae to come together over a topic they were invested in.”
