About Our Auction
The funds raised will support Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School's commitment to expanding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), which is a progressive initiative that focuses on improving overall learning and working environments by valuing the interconnectedness of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Whereas diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting such as race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age and socioeconomic class, equity is the act of ensuring that processes and programs are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual. Combined with inclusion—the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging in the workplace—these three concepts create the opportunity for students, teachers, staff, and parents to feel comfortable and supported while being their authentic selves. At Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School, DEI funding will go towards supporting programming and development related to curriculum enrichment, increasing cultural diversity and representation, as well as presenting financial support in the form of scholarship opportunities.
