It’s Day 2 Of Anti-Racism And Inclusivity Week!

Get ready for some fun and thought-provoking activities this week!

Stevenson’s second annual Anti-Racism and Inclusivity Week, running this entire week, will be focused on the theme of “Allyship,” which is integral to our community’s collective commitment to equity, access and inclusivity. To be an ally requires that a person not simply notice an injustice, but also take action by bringing attention to the injustice and requesting that it be corrected.

Here are the ARIW activities for today during the lunch hours:

Here are tomorrow’s highlights:

  • Speakers Dr. Laura P. Minero (Keynote) and Mr. Israel Starck

For a full schedule of events, including times and locations, please visit the Anti-Racism and Inclusivity page on the Stevenson website.
