DEI Monthly Roundtables and Gatherings

In keeping with our belief in the value of community and our commitment to home-school partnership, all parents, caregivers, faculty, and staff are all invited to monthly roundtable discussions and social events with PCA CARES (Parent and Caregiver Association, Committee for Advancing Racial Equity in our School).

It is our hope that these gatherings will be an opportunity to build community and partner together to help support our children, and as such, our theme for 2022-23 will be "Building Our Community and Celebrating Our Joy."

Special Note for White Parents/Caregivers
Alongside the PCA CARES/DEI programming for this year, a White affinity group will meet monthly for GSFS parents/caregivers who identify as White/are of European descent or those who benefit from white skin privilege. The goal is to offer space to do the deeper personal work of undoing internalized racism in service of teaching ourselves and our children to be more anti-racist and offer the GSFS community truer White allyship. White affinity group space invites self-study work in service of undoing White supremacy without putting labor or further harm onto BIPOC community (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). 

Please join us each month from 6-7:30pm. You may attend all or just one session, we welcome you. All sessions are virtual.

  • Oct 19th

This group is run as part of the PCA CARES/GSFS DEI work and alongside and in solidarity with the BIPOC affinity group. If you would like to know more about the White affinity group, please email Alison Gerig at alisongerig@gmail.com.
