By Dani Dominguez, Equity and Inclusion Director

It is with great honor and humility that I serve as the Director of Equity and Inclusion at NNMS and represent this incredible community and powerful mission. In the short time that I’ve been here, I’m already present to the gift it is to work alongside such passionate and dedicated humans. I am excited for our future.

At NNMS, we are committed to cultivating a learning environment that honors, values, and affirms everyone, and part of that commitment is made possible through rigorous practice and embodiment of equity work. To kick off our year, I’d like to invite you to participate in our 21 Day Equity Challenge presented by our parent affinity groups, SEED and AWARE. 

This self-paced opportunity will hopefully help you to develop a deeper understanding of how inequalities affect our lives and communities. Weekly topics take participants through a reflective journey to deepen understanding of racism, white supremacy, and intersecting inequalities. Prompts suggest ways to take action and hope to foster and sustain a lifelong commitment to improving equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The hope is that by modeling to our children our shared Montessori values of being life-long learners that through our example, they will know how important it is to model vulnerability to discover something new.  Hope you can join us.
