Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice

Mission Statement

As an IB school committed to inspiring excellence - the continuous pursuit of personal best - in education and life with the goal of creating a better and more peaceful world, Mulgrave values and celebrates diverse individual identities in a community where we act with humility, empathy, commitment and inclusion.

We have an unwavering commitment to cultivate a sense of belonging and mobilise all community members to engage in the process of influencing change. With dedication, we work to create a safe, brave space for our students where they feel comfortable using their voice and agency to advocate for themselves and injustices in their local and global communities. 

We seek to make sure that the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice inform our everyday interactions and our whole community's approach to learning and interpersonal relationships. 

We work on the DEIJ agenda in three main areas:

  • Education of our students 

  • Education of our faculty and staff

  • Engagement and support of our families

Because we understand the DEIJ journey is an ongoing, evolving process, we recognise the importance of embedding best practices into the core of our community to support sustainability and continual growth. Practices of current focus include:

  • DEIJ Strategic and Advisory Councils 

  • DEIJ Student Sub-Council 

  • Climate Survey for Staff

  • Listening Circles for Students and Staff

  • Anti-bias/Anti-racism Course for School Leaders 

  • Consistent Professional Development for Faculty and Staff

  • DEIJ Education and Training as needed per division and/or content area

  • DEIJ-focused curriculum audits in collaboration with the Director of DEI

  • Indigenous Education integration

  • Compulsory Global Citizenship Course for Grade 10

  • Mother Tongue Amplification and Integration

  • Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI)
