About

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The Baldwin School aims to cultivate a respectful medium that supports the experiences, perspectives and intersectionality of our community members. The diversity within our community allows for varying viewpoints creating a holistic learning environment. 

We are dedicated to working diligently to address the changing culture of the global world through ongoing assessment of curriculum, professional development and challenging dialogue. Our intentional approach to growth and progress is designed to keep our work student-centered, with each student being seen, uplifted and empowered in an effort to mold our students to be intellectuals and global change agents.

  • Student-Led Affinity Groups

    Students are invited to join clubs that they may have a connection or an interest in participating. These groups can also be identified as affinity spaces, and are offered in the Middle School and Upper School. Organizations include: Black Student Union, Spectrum, Asian Student Association, Hispanic Student Association and many more.
  • Faculty and Staff

    There are opportunities available for faculty and staff to engage in learning centered around DEI topics. The groups meet regularly throughout the school year. Such groups include Building Anti-Racist White Educators (BARWE). These groups provide employees an opportunity to continue to learn in safe and brave spaces. 
  • Conferences/Workshops

    Throughout the year there are conferences available for students, faculty and staff. These are opportunities for participants to widen their network and learn from experts outside of Baldwin. During these conferences, Baldwin faculty often are presenting their newest research. Some conferences attended include: People of Color Conference and the Student Leadership Diversity Conference.
  • Parent/Caregiver Partnerships

    The parents/caregivers/guardians of Baldwin students play a major role in our community. There are several Parent Associations, all of which are critical in the progress of our DEI mission. 
  • Professional Development

    Professional development is vital to faculty and staff growth. Baldwin is committed to investing time and resources to the education of our community. We have hosted many organizations and speakers, notably, Rosetta Lee, The Wells Collective, The Lion Story: Racial Literacy and Pollyanna.
