About The Diversity Committee

The goals of the Hamden Hall County Day School Diversity Committee are to work with the entire school community to develop and implement programs to build connections, reduce stereotypes and prejudices on campus, and increase cultural, religious, racial, and sexual orientation awareness in a safe environment.

The Diversity Committee is comprised of students and faculty members and collaborates with other campus organizations to be inclusive. Members of the committee organize educational campus programs and invite guest speakers to provide personal testimony of their own experiences on many different topics.

Members of the Diversity Committee also have the opportunity to participate in leadership and diversity conferences throughout the year.
