Diversity Inclusion and Opportunity

Dear Nardin Community,
It is with immense enthusiasm that I join Nardin Academy as the Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Opportunity.

Our ultimate goal is to ensure our students feel heard, included and have equitable experiences. Even more so, for all members of the Nardin community to extend beyond what is comfortable to what is possible.

We are at a turning point worldwide and recognize the power of inclusivity everywhere. Nardin
Academy is poised and ready to continue to build a community where we can all use our unique abilities. We have accomplished a lot, but recognize there is still much to do. We also recognize we are stronger together and will call on everyone to be true to our mission and values. All of our team will continue to participate in programs that will expose us to diverse ideas and professional and personal growth opportunites. It is in these spaces where knowledge is increased, perspectives are challenged and authentic relationships are formed.

Finally, I hope the office of Diversity, Inclusion and Opportunity will be a source that inspires us
all to stand together, stay steadfast in our efforts and continue to be all that is possible when we recognize, welcome and celebrate all.

I am happy to meet with anyone who wants to learn more. I am here to help, and happy to do so.
In Faith and In Focus

Karen R. Brown
Director of Diversity, Inclusion, and Opportunity
