Upper School Students Attend Summer Conference Promoting Inclusivity

Collegiate students Abby Fleming, Lily Hunnicut, Sophie Lou and Makai Milton attended the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities Connections Summer Institute, a five-day conference for high school students focusing on human relations, diversity appreciation and bias reduction. Throughout the conference students developed strategies to implement programs designed to reduce conflict, improve communication and understanding and create more welcoming school communities. Delegates will work throughout the year to implement the action plan they created while at the conference and to help perpetuate the ideals of inclusion in the Collegiate community.
