At Gilmour Academy, the commitment to the ideas and practices of diversity, equity, inclusion, and its tangential work, starts with our Holy Cross charisms and mission as a Holy Cross school, and continues with our intentional, lifelong commitment to courageously act in creating a more humane and just society.
As the Director of Diversity and Inclusion, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Gilmour Academy. Whether you are a prospective or current student, family member, alum or colleague, the information contained within our site will be useful in providing you with a comprehensive overview of our programs, resources and the environment we are fostering.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion strives to create equitable experiences; embed inclusive practices into our everyday lives; and ensure psychological comfort, fairness, human decency and more, so that our students are developed into individuals who will be successful in a global society. Our communal goal is to go beyond merely recognizing and embracing diverse groups, but to holistically demonstrate that embrace through our everyday interactions without necessitating the use of the words “diversity” and “inclusion.”
We hope you find the Diversity webpage useful. I invite you to visit the Office of Diversity and Inclusion in the Counseling Wing of the Upper School to learn more about our focused efforts or to share how you think Gilmour can grow as it relates to these important matters of diversity, equity and inclusion.
Lead with love!
Director of Diversity and Inclusion
