Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) at Schoolhouse
Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are commonly defined as:
Diversity is the presence of differences that may include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, (dis)ability, age, religious commitment, or political perspective.
Equity is promoting justice, impartiality and fairness
Inclusion is an outcome to ensure all members of the community feel welcome.
At Schoolhouse, we believe that socio-emotional learning and diversity, equity, and inclusion are inextricably linked. These two concepts intersect, creating a foundation where we infuse DEI throughout all aspects of the program, including developing empathy, strengthening communication skills, embracing cultural competency, and practicing perspective taking. Schoolhouse understands that these aspects are integral to a child’s social emotional growth. We nurture students to accept themselves and their peers as they are, embracing differences.
