diversity, equity, and Inclusivity

A Collective Sense of Purpose and Commitment

Our mission “to inspire girls and young women to become game changers and ethical leaders who forge an equitable, sustainable, and joyous future” compels us to see that equity and community life is everyone’s work at Hewitt. Diversity, equity, and inclusivity stand as foundational commitments that guide every aspect of our teaching and learning. These institutional values inform our pedagogy, foster personal growth, and cultivate belonging. We believe that a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is essential to educating girls and young women to be positive contributors and citizens of the world.

Hewitt empowers and expects our community members to embrace multiple points of view, to engage others with empathy and integrity, and to champion equity and justice in all areas of our lives.


 

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusivity Programs

At Hewitt, we believe that we cannot give children what we as adults do not have. As such, to give our students what they need to become game changers and ethical leaders, we engage all parents, guardians, faculty, and staff in ongoing diversity, equity, and inclusivity programming. We recognize that the work of creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is ever evolving, never completed, often difficult, and deeply rewarding. All diversity, equity, and inclusivity initiatives at Hewitt ask the community to remain fully present, develop empathy, establish a collective purpose, and employ research-based practices for educating girls in a richly varied and globally interconnected world.

OUR K-12 CURRICULUM

At Hewitt, diversity, equity, and inclusivity are not separate from our mission; they are a part of it. As such, our K-12 program intentionally and consistently invites students to engage with questions of equity and justice.
