MULTICULTURAL EDUCATORS FORUM
Fenn’s Multicultural Educators Forum (MEF) dates back to February 2010. Its goal is to provide New England independent school colleagues with a day devoted to conversation and reflection about fostering school communities that are diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just. By design, these forums are interactive and offer a variety of avenues for faculty, staff, and administrators to share their thoughts and questions about their work. Participants learn from each other how schools run their DEI programs and what strategies they use to develop their institutions multiculturally.
The MEF was formed as part of a Fenn diversity program outreach initiative and has become an opportunity for community building and networking with our area schools. The Fenn School believes that teachers interested in furthering multicultural education and competently engaging every student must be aware and skilled; they must be supported not only by our respective institutions but also by our peers in other schools. All educators have unique experiences to offer, and by sharing these experiences with each other in the spirit of learning, we promote schools that are more inclusive, fair, and just.
Past keynote speakers for this conference have included Rodney Glasgow, John Hunter, Shujaa Graham, Kim Phuc, Rosetta Lee, and Sonia Nazario.
