The presence of an inclusion and belonging practitioner is a key contributor in ensuring a school community is one that values the diversity of people, ideas, and perspectives.

We believe that the work of equity, belonging, and inclusion ensures that a school’s mission is realized for every member of its community. It is the driving force behind a school’s value proposition and its promise to promote the well-being of every community member. A school committing to a designated person charged with oversight and guidance in these areas increases its ability to navigate these complex aspects of a school’s growth.
