A Diverse Community 
Striving for Equity and Social Justice

The presence of multiple perspectives enhances The Ethel Walker School’s curricular rigor and the School’s relevance to the “real world.” Becoming leaders requires that we learn to value cultural perspectives different from our own, whatever our personal background. The Walker’s community includes people of different ages, abilities, interests, nationalities, racial, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, family structures, sexual orientations, religious traditions and political affiliations.

By creating opportunities to examine social systems both on and off campus, we seek to deepen our knowledge of systems of social inequality such as sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, and religious oppression. We also aim to cultivate the desire to actively work against such systems, and to work toward equity for all.
