Town Hall Meeting
Town Hall Meeting: Alumni and Parents
Wed., June 17, 6-7:30 p.m.


This is a reminder regarding our town hall Wed., June 17 at 6pm on the topic of diversity, equity and inclusion at Harker. You can register to the Zoom meeting here:

The primary goal of this town hall will be to provide parents and alumni an opportunity to share thoughts, sentiments and questions, and to provide input that will help the school enhance and focus our efforts and impact in the coming years. The event will include discussions of essential questions, as well as open mic time for additional comments. We are also holding a separate event for current students and faculty.

The last phrase of our mission statement reads that we prepare our students “to take their place as global citizens.” Harker is a uniquely global community, and as such, not only do our students represent the future of this globe, they have the opportunity to define it.

Our efforts to embrace diversity, another component of our mission statement, are by no means perfect or without challenge. In fact, we can only advance our collective capabilities by facing and addressing the challenges in front of us, which can be hard. Yet, we need to do so with a spirit of compassion, understanding, and hope. The recent killing of George Floyd at the hands of an arresting officer has sparked outrage throughout our communities. The insidious nature of implicit racism continues to plague our progress, and overt racism continues to exist in our country.

We hope that you can join this town hall to help us meet our mission, to help us be the best community we can be, to help us become an example for the rest of society, and to help us have the hard conversations that we need to have.
