Faculty Commitment

Beyond our professional development opportunities focused on antiracism, equity and belonging, faculty also meet in small groups to discuss their work and our goals as a school.  Our Faculty Gay-Straight Alliance, MLK Committee, and White Anti-Racist Affinity Group, are a few of the places where faculty can learn, collaborate and innovate.

Faculty Diversity Groups

List of 4 items.

  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee and MLK Symposium Advisors

    Members of this committee meet to determine our year-long programming focused on community equity and justice, inspired by the civil rights movement.   Various events, including our high school MLK symposium, our  MLK peace march, and the 8th grade book writing project, are featured events each year.
  • Faculty & Staff of Color Affinity Group

    This faculty and staff affinity group seeks to build community and connections with peers of color at GCS. Monthly meetings offer conversation, safe space, and support. This group works alongside WAAG and other student and faculty identity groups to further our mission of inclusion. 
     
  • Faculty Gay-Straight Alliance

    Faculty gather in our Gay-Straight Alliance to share programs, lessons, and community education opportunities that support our LGBTQ+ community.
  • White Anti-Racism Affinity Group

    WAAG @ Grace (White Anti-Racism Affinity Group) is a facilitated space for white educators who are exploring their own racial identity development and learning about  how their whiteness impacts teaching practices, community building, and school culture. We aim to learn together through our discussions as well as available resources (books, podcasts, articles, etc) and workshops (Undoing Racism, White Privilege Conference, CARLE), to explore how white people experience discussing race and to improve our skills in multiracial collaboration towards creating an anti-racist community.
