On Tuesday evening, September 28, Professor Steven Fein from Williams College will speak to the whole school at 7:30 pm in Kiggins Hall. As part of the Serving and Shaping Her World Speakers Series, Professor Fein will speak about stereotypes and race-based discrimination issues, particularly in relation to the media. Following Tuesday evening’s required talk, the school community will participate in Diversity Day. No classes will meet from 8 am to 3:20 pm on Wednesday, September 29, so that students and adults can engage in schoolwide and small group discussions about diversity-related topics. The goals of Diversity Day are to learn about the diversity within Emma, to break down misconceptions, and to foster community. In addition to discussion-based activities led by peer educators, Diversity Day includes a student panel, opportunities to record experiences and reflections, a closing video presentation, and a performance by Twelve Tones, the senior a cappella group.
