Task Force update from facilitator Terri Givens `83
The Equity and Inclusion Task Force is continuing their regular meetings and we are currently considering plans by the administration to address issues raised by the BIPOC Coalition. The administration is actively engaged in a variety of areas to ensure that they are meeting the goals of addressing equity and inclusion in a way that allows students to feel safe and heard. We will be exploring avenues to ensure that the leadership is in regular dialogue with students, faculty, staff, and alumni in meeting the school's mission and intent related to equity.

Update from President Michael Dougherty
On September 25, 2020, the faculty and staff of Gonzaga Prep welcomed the invitation of a coalition of students and alumni who offered to share their experiences of racism at Gonzaga Prep. In the meeting, which took place over Zoom, members of the coalition shared their own stories, as well as the anonymous stories of their peers who could not be present. The coalition’s leadership opened with prayer, established the safe space for sharing, and closed the meeting with an Ignatian examen.
