Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Upcoming Events

Please join us for our second webinar: "From Surviving to Thriving," led by Dr. Dena Simmons, Assistant Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. 

During this interactive session, participants will explore impostor syndrome in the classroom and culturally relevant teaching practices. As Dr. Simmons says, "Every child deserves an education that guarantees the safety to learn in the comfort of one's own skin."

Anti-Racism Statement and Actions

Head-Royce School stands against racism and hatred in all its forms. Our entire community reflects diversity in cultural, racial, religious, and gender identities and we are stronger because of it. Our School's mission is built on the pillars of diversity, citizenship, and academics; our commitment to these principles demands that we raise our voices in pursuit of justice. We acknowledge the significant, ongoing pain and violence inflicted upon our Black community, and pledge to embody our mission by taking tangible actions to dismantle systemic racism and oppression. 

Please see our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Action Plan, which outlines our current priorities (published on July 28, 2020):

Anti-Racism Resources

The Office of Equity & Inclusion has put together a list of resources so that we can support families and caregivers in talking about race, xenophobia, protest, and standing up for social justice. Please come back periodically for updates. If you have suggested resources (books, articles, movie, podcasts, etc.) that you think would be helpful for fellow parents and caregivers, submit them here.
