Kendra Brim '07, Nardin's Director of Diversity, Inclusion and Opportunity, has curated a list of resources that she hopes will facilitate ongoing dialogue with our Lower, Middle and Montessori students regarding the important social justice issues facing our country and our world today. These resources are to continue conversations surrounding the importance of understanding multiple perspectives and the power of positive action.
The curated list below features resources in many formats for your reference. This by no means is an all-inclusive list, but we hope that these resources, from webinars and articles to short videos and books, provide guidance for conversations with students.
