DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVITY

Forsyth School_Diversity & Inclusivity

At Forsyth School, we strive to create a community where all members feel cared for and connected. 

We believe diversity and inclusivity is an ongoing and ever-evolving process. We consistently question and evaluate our work in an effort to provide an inclusive, supportive community where all members can be themselves. The stages of our process mirror child development in which children first notice and question, then understand and celebrate differences.

During the 2019/20 school year, Forsyth established Forsyth Forward, a new event series to promote all-school initiatives and topics of interest to support the advancement of the school community. Topics include (but are not limited to) diversity and inclusivity, curriculum innovation, social-emotional development, technology, and sustainability.

In 2019, Forsyth's Head of School established a dedicated Task Force to spearhead community-wide Diversity & Inclusivity efforts. A complementary, faculty-led Equity & Empathy sub-committee provides information, resources, and support to faculty and staff. During the 2018/19 school year, Forsyth partnered with the following organizations on Diversity & Inclusivity events and programs:

EyeSeeMe
Interfaith Partnership
We Stories

Forsyth faculty and staff participate in a variety of professional development opportunities related to Diversity & Inclusivity:
