Students Engage in Give Respect Get Respect Program

The Give Respect Get Respect program, facilitated by the Diversity Awareness Partnership, includes five anti-bias training sessions throughout the school year and collaboration opportunities with students from other schools and employees from local organizations and businesses. Six MICDS Upper School students—Zoe Carter-Konate ’22, Lauren Douglas ’22, Zaire Harrell ’22, Cammy Henderson ’22, Amani Hendricks ’22, and Raygan McDile ’22—participated in the program.

Participants shared their perspectives and learned from each other about identities including ability, race, religion, and more. Students developed tools and strategies to become inclusive leaders and break down walls that may separate groups of students from each other.
