Diversity & Equity Committee
Since its inception in 2018, Park Century’s Diversity and Equity Committee (DEC) has enacted their mission to support and empower the diverse students, parents, and staff that make up our community. Formed by dedicated faculty and staff, the DEC consciously promotes equity, reduces bias, and provides space for everyone to feel welcome in our community.
We believe our differences - in race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, socioeconomic status, nationality, religion, belief system, language, learning styles, and more - strengthen and enrich our educational experience.
The DEC works with our Parents Association and Student Council to organize events like our annual Dia de los Muertos celebration and our Black History Month showcase, which displays the work of each classroom as they learn about the history and influence of Black Americans and the African American experience. The DEC also formed our Adoptee Affinity Group in the fall of 2018 and the Gay Straight Alliance in the spring of 2020.
