Diversity Equity Inclusion Justice (DEIJ)
AISL values and honors multiple intersectional identities along with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences. We strive to create welcoming and respectful learning environments and promote access, opportunity and justice for all.
DEIJ or JEDI?
Inspired by our commitment to create a just and sustainable world (AISL Vision), AISL is committed to promoting JUSTICE, EQUITY, DIVERSITY, and INCLUSION (JEDI).
The focus of our JEDI work is as follows:
- Cultivate a diverse and inclusive school community by fostering a safe environment where everyone feels valued, heard, and a sense of belonging.
- Design and implement environments, curricula, and instructional methods that validate and reflect the diversity, identities, and experiences of our students.
- Recruit, retain and develop faculty/staff and leaders of the highest quality by emphasizing excellence and all aspects of diversity in hiring decisions
We use a common language to describe and inform our learning and understanding.
Through our learning and understanding, we foster a sense of hope, an impetus to act, and a firm belief that standing up for justice and inclusion is both the responsible and right thing to do.
