Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI)
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at ACS
The Avery Coonley School is excited to announce the creation of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council. The Council’s primary purpose is to provide oversight of the School’s diversity goals and provide input and guidance to achieve the goals. Additionally, the Council will provide insight on issues of DEI, and also advocate for members of our diverse population.
The School's DEI goals are a key part of the 2018 Strategic Plan:
Strengthen our identity as a diverse, inclusive, and multicultural school community. Several additional sub-goals and actions fall under this overarching Strategic Plan goal.
The Council includes representatives from all constituency groups: Parents, Trustees, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, External Experts. Any questions about Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at The Avery Coonley School may be sent to DEI@averycoonley.org.
