Social justice, equity, and inclusion are woven into the fabric of who we are and what we do.
The Ethel Walker School is committed to the work of justice and equity which is implemented throughout all facets of school life as we strive to be a model institution for this work. Through our strategic initiatives, senior leadership, course content, and intentional focus, Walker’s strives to be a community where every person can experience belonging and have what they need to thrive in our community.
As a commitment to learning and growing in justice and equity work, Walker’s faculty are encouraged and supported in their attendance at conferences, panels, webinars, institutes, and training. This attendance contributes to an advancement in understanding and sharing of critical information that guides our work with students and one another.
