Equity and Inclusion
Choate’s Office of Equity and Inclusion continues to build upon the impressive groundwork of Driving Equity at Choate and the Choate Diversity Student Association, to develop a school-wide approach to diversity, inclusion, and multicultural competence.
Since 1989, when the first Office of Multicultural Affairs was created, our commitment to diversity remains a core value of the School. Through day-to-day activities, curriculum, and school-wide celebrations, we seek to raise awareness and encourage understanding of differences of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic class, geographical origin, and sexual orientation.
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force
This new Task Force serves as a commitment to developing authentic, effective, and sustainable initiatives to ensure we create the most just, inclusive, and equitable Choate Rosemary Hall community possible. Dr. Rachel Myers, Dean of Equity & Inclusion, is leading an eleven-member staff and faculty group in the development of a plan of action that spans all elements of school life.
Interested in what the DEI Task Force read?
All members of the DEI Task Force read Dr. Bonnie French’s 2018 work Race at Predominantly White Independent Schools: The Space between Diversity and Equity. French’s book promotes positive change in Independent Schools through various diversity efforts and includes supporting quantitative and qualitative data to go along with her claims.
