Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Forums
This is a challenging time for our country and for the communities of which we are all a part. It is incumbent upon us to hear and heed the voices raised in opposition to racism and injustice. At Potomac, we recognize that we need to engage in deep listening and take action that will result in meaningful change. We know that the many voices within our community can inform our thinking as we seek ways to better support Black students and other students who have been marginalized.
This summer, we are holding a series of forums for various constituents, beginning with our Black alumni and our Black students in rising grades 8-12 and the Class of 2020. A list of these forums is included below. Please check back as we will be sharing more dates for upcoming programs. Our goal is to ensure that Potomac becomes a place where every student feels a sense of belonging and is able to thrive.
