On Friday, May 28, we hosted a virtual event to share updates on the actions we are taking as a school community to advance justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) at our school. This was an opportunity to show our families the many ways we are trying to make systemic and cultural change, while also celebrating the progress we have made as a school community in the last few years.
We invite you to listen to the stories we shared below (featuring artwork by Anisha K. '22!). Current members of the Nueva community can also access a full-recording of the event on our community recordings archive on the internal homepage.

Building a Sense of Belonging: THRIVE
The THRIVE program supports historically underrepresented students and families. Hear from students and program advisors to learn how THRIVE supports positive identity development and community-building at Nueva.
Evolving Our Teaching Practices: Equity and Inclusion Institute
Nurturing justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion at our school, means building capacity among all of our community members to advance these values and support this work. One of the ways we have helped teachers—at Nueva and beyond—grow their awareness and evolve their teaching practices is through our Equity and Inclusion Institute.
