Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The diversity mission statement in the Lawrence Academy handbook is as follows:
Lawrence Academy seeks to encourage the voice of every community member and invites a spirit of education as a means of celebrating diversity, acknowledging each individual’s unique qualities regardless of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, ability, religious affiliation, and political views.
Here are some books our DEI Team is reading this summer:
- Race Talk and the Conspiracy of Silence: Understanding and Facilitating Difficult Dialogues on Race by Derald Wing Sue
- Schooltalk: Rethinking What We Say About and To Students Every Day by Mica Pollock
- White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism by Robin DiAngelo
- Not Light, But Fire by Matthew R. Kay
"The light shines for all..."
Please call me if you have any questions about our mission, our programs, or Lawrence Academy.
