Equity and Inclusion

Overview

Equity & Inclusion
Discernment, Listening, Action

“At the heart of our Ignatian spirituality and tradition of Jesuit education is discernment. At the heart of that discernment is listening. Our listening must lead to concrete action to address the stain of racism in our school, our community, our country, and our world so that we are transformed into the kind of community that God calls us and intends for us to be. Our commitment and action steps are informed by our faith — a faith that is lived not just by doing justice, but by responding to our brothers and sisters with love and hope, in a spirit and call to what unites us and not what drives us apart as we seek to stand in solidarity and peace with one another.”

Update

Staying Connected – Sept 11

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Caregivers, 

My name is Jordan Brown, the Director of Equity and Inclusion at Jesuit High School Sacramento. I began this summer to facilitate an increased emphasis on diversity and anti-racism as part of the school’s journey towards providing all students with a welcoming and safe campus. As a former Jesuit High School student, I am grateful to have the opportunity to educate our community on more anti-racist practices. My experiences of studying abroad, teaching boys and young men of color, facilitating culturally relevant workshops, providing educational technology resources, and leading youth immersions have prepared me to take on this important role.
