Once a year Upper School students and teachers put classes on hold and join together for Convocation, a student-led day devoted to exploring social justice issues and building community through dialogue. Nationally renowned diversity practitioner Rodney Glasgow kicked off the morning with a powerful and deeply personal keynote address that drew from his childhood and coming of age experiences with racial bias and gender identity and, of late, his experiences as an educator and advocate in the Black Lives Matter movement. Following Mr. Glasgow's keynote, students fanned out into one of 19 different workshops, including “America divided: Putting privilege into perspective,” “Microaggressions,” and “Islamic identity in America.” The day closed with grade level activities and an all-school Meeting for Worship, during which students praised Convocation organizers and shared their appreciation for the day and the opportunities it provided to connect with one another on a more meaningful level.
