UA's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Union Academy aspires to be a leader in creating a more inclusive, just, and respectful world for our children. We continue to foster a school culture that respects and embraces everyone, including training and conversations in the following areas:
- Unconscious biases (we all have them)
- Curiosity and sharing, without judgment
- Psychological safety, connection, and a sense of belonging
- An open mind, with active listening (to be heard and understood)
- Team-building and morale
UA's Diversity and Inclusion Task Force
In the summer of 2020, our Head of School and our Board of Directors developed a Diversity and Inclusion Statement and launched UA’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. The D&I Task Force includes committed individuals from our Boards (The UA Foundation and our school’s Board of Directors), faculty and staff, and parents.
The D&I Task Force works toward goals in the following areas:
- Education and Training
- Student Services
- Faculty, Staff, and Student Recruitment
- Communications to the UA Community
If you are interested in joining the D&I Task Force in 2022-23, please contact Sherryann Sylvestre, firstname.lastname@example.org.
