Dialogue & Community-Building Sessions

At-A-Glance Schedule

Your participation is 100% optional and up to you. You are welcome to join any conversation. None are exclusive. There are 50 different session groupings offered on the schedule. They range from general groups that invite broad participation to those that focus on the experiences of diverse identities. The core goal of each session is to establish a safe space for important dialogue with one another around topics relevant to DEI.  All options are open to everyone, and you can sign up to participate in one or more Dialogue and Community-Building Session(s). Please use the links below to register.

To clarify a misunderstanding about our upcoming Dialogue and Community-Building sessions, and to provide further information on the project and the process in which our school is currently engaged, we sent a letter to all members of our Brentwood School community. Please note that while we offer many different grouping options, these focused Dialogue and Community-Building sessions are not exclusive in any way. All options are open to everyone, and you can sign up to participate in one or more sessions.
