DJA celebrates Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Awareness
Daniel Jenkins Academy (DJA) students, faculty, and staff participated in a weeklong event emphasizing, educating, and inspiring all participants about the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) earlier this month. The celebration included discussions and expressions of what diversity looks and sounds like, what it means to provide equity (as opposed to equality), and what it means to be inclusive of all individuals.
Students, along with faculty and staff members, expressed their ideas through illustrations and words to highlight understandings of DEI and enhance DEI-themed bulletin boards throughout the building.
"Our staff worked hard to provide meaningful activities, and our students made good connections and showed deep thinking,” said Interim Principal Chad Ferguson. “We are excited to build on this work as we continue to make diversity, equity, and inclusion a foundation of our program at Daniel Jenkins."
