The mission of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee is to deepen understanding and respect for individual and cultural differences and foster an environment in which differences and similarities can be openly discussed, debated and celebrated.
We do this by: holding open meetings to encourage a variety of viewpoints on diversity related issues; working with the school administration and the board to assess and address diversity-related needs; sponsoring events and learning opportunities that allow members of the community to share their own traditions, experiences, and views and to learn about the traditions and experiences of others.
Unlike other committees on the Board, this committee is open to the entire NNM family. Past events sponsored include Diwali and Passover celebrations and a multicultural Festival of Lights.
