Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice
At Pegasus, we believe that each student and member of the Pegasus Community deserves a safe environment and an educational experience that leads to a deeper understanding of, and respect for, people and perspectives.
We believe that a diverse and inclusive community is stronger, more compassionate, and more sustainable than one that actively, or implicitly, excludes those who are different.
We seek to acknowledge and understand power, privilege, and inequity, and to accept our responsibility to help create a more just world.
A commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice is imperative for Pegasus to fulfill its mission.
FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES:
The Pegasus School embraces the principles of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ). DEIJ is not a new concept to Pegasus. These values are woven into the fabric of our school, and it is important to highlight them and to reflect on how they are demonstrated within our community.
This is our statement to the community. But it is just that, a statement. What really matters is action. Our commitment is an ongoing process of learning, discovery, and growth. We need to look inward and have conversations that may make us uncomfortable. We need to acknowledge that inequity exists. We need to talk freely with respect and without judgment. Finally, we need to convert introspection into action in a way that supports our mission.
This is a commitment that honors the humanity of us all. It is the continuation of a journey that started many years ago, a uniquely Pegasus exercise rooted in respect, compassion, and the constant drive to be better.
