We at GDS have been engaging across the community to further define and deepen our commitments to being an anti-racist institution and staying true to our founding mission.
We have identified a path forward for the institution, and we want to transparently share how we have performed in meeting our commitments for the 2020-21 school year and beyond. Below you will find details of our work in the areas of community engagement, programming, professional development, and policy.
