Equity and Inclusion

Equity and inclusion are at the very center of all that we do here at Maret. Over the years, our work has expanded in both breadth and depth as we constantly re-evaluate what it means to be conscientious equity practitioners. We believe that, while imperfect and sometimes stumbling, we must remain on the path toward building a stronger community and, ultimately, a better world. See below for more details on our ongoing initiatives promoting dialogue and self-reflection, which are essential to a healthy campus.

Deepening the Discussion About Race

Mixed Forum

Co-sponsored by Diversity at Maret students and the Maret Parents Association Diversity Committee, the Mixed Forum generates discussion about compelling topics among Upper School students, parents, and faculty from all division.


Upper School Day of Dialogue

Maret’s annual Upper School Day of Dialogue is an opportunity for
students and faculty to engage as a community around issues of
identity and equity through presentations and workshops. These
conversations are central to our Mission and critical for students’
personal growth.


Lower School Culture Club

Each session of the Culture Club is taught by Maret parent volunteers who represent a variety of cultures and who share their personal stories and traditions. Students enjoy food, games, music, dance, crafts, and other activities to celebrate each culture.
