Welcome back to a new school year. Irving’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee is proud to announce some exciting new initiatives and updates for the upcoming year, starting with our new acronym DivInc and a brand new logo! Additionally, we have two new DivInc Co-Chairs, Mechelle Wesley and Lettie Sullivan. Both ladies share a strong commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion and would love your support.
As part of our mission, Irving’s DivInc recognizes the need to include all families, and strives to help build a community and atmosphere at Irving that is welcoming, supportive and inclusive for all. This year we aim to partner with Irving students, families, and faculty to ensure that all voices are heard. Our initiatives highlight: racial equity, gender inclusion, cultural enrichment, support for our families with disabilities, support for single parent families, and many others. They also happen to be FUN! If you are looking to help shape the culture at Irving, have ideas to share, or are just interested in opportunities to become more involved, we welcome you.
DivInc will be holding our first meeting of the year on next Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at 6:30PM. This meeting will be held inside the school library with food and childcare (PS – we are looking to grow our list of babysitters too, so let us know if you know anyone!) available. We hope to see you there!!!
Your Diversity & Inclusion Committee Co-Chairs,
Mechelle & Lettie
