"I care deeply about helping CSW to be an equitable and informed community."
"I chose to join the IDEA Committee because I care deeply about helping CSW to be an equitable and informed community. I feel that as a white person, it is my responsibility to put in the personal and actionable work towards dismantling white supremacy... In a community that prides itself on its dedication to social justice, I believe it is imperative that our actions match our intentions."
— Ella '21
The IDEA Committee: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Action Committee is a group of elected student representatives, staff, and faculty members whose purpose is to work together to make CSW an open and safe community that encourages all voices to be heard in a respectful manner, promoting the enrichment of our school culture through discussions, events and wide-ranging curricula.
As a committee, the group seeks to foster a campus that provides a sense of inclusiveness that reflects the broad range of ages, races, genders, ethnicities, cultures, nationalities, religions, sexual orientations, social and economic classes, and physical and learning differences in our community.
The Diversity Committee is charged with leading many on-campus events (like Diversity Day) and works closely with Affinity, Interest and Alliance Groups on trainings, conferences, or other important yearly leadership projects.
