Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission
In working toward bold, systemic, and sustainable change across Milton’s learning environment, school culture, day-to-day practices, and overarching strategy, Milton’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission (DEIC) began its year-long work with deep stakeholder engagement. From fireside chats, focus groups, and a climate assessment curated by an external consulting group, Diversity Directions, members of the DEIC prioritized listening to and understanding the experiences of students, employees, alumni, and families.
Relying on these perspectives and themes, the DEIC developed a list of recommendations. Rather than propose a new, discrete framework, the DEIC aligned its recommendations specifically to Milton Academy’s mission statement and existing DEI Strategic Plan. Implementation of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission’s Recommendations is already underway.
Who We Are
Milton’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission, formed in the summer of 2020, is a group of alumni, staff, faculty, parents, and trustees committed to charting a new path for Milton’s diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice efforts. Commission members are educators, social justice activists, entrepreneurs, political advocates, technology experts, and civil servants, and their association with Milton spans from one to 49 years. Coming together under a common call, the DEI Commission seeks to help shape a bold future for Milton as a school at the forefront of equity and justice.
