Equity & Inclusion Virtual Speaker Series
We are once again pleased to partner with several other independent schools in the Greater Seattle area to offer the Equity and Inclusion Virtual Speaker Series, designed to provide our communities an opportunity to connect, learn, and engage in topics around equity, inclusion, and antiracist education and action. The series will include five nationally-known speakers.
Thank you to the HNA community members who joined us for the first speaker in the series, Tiffany Jewell, on Wednesday, October 19, 2022. Jewell, the author of This Book is Anti-Racist, spoke on identity, social justice, and activism.

NWord: Is There a Message in the Madness
Dr. Moore writes, “Who is allowed to say the N!word? What do we do or say when the N!word is said in our classrooms, hallways, practices, cafeterias and resident halls? Ignoring the N!Word is not an option anymore - You can hear N!Word everywhere nowadays. Participants are challenged to examine their personal/professional histories with N!Word when and/or how they first heard N!Word and pictures/feelings associated with the word. The workshop encourages all people, but specifically future leaders, educators and parents, to consider the ramifications of casual or uniformed usage of a powerful and troublesome word.”
