Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Bullis School's Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Bullis's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is embedded in our school's values: Caring, Challenging, and Community.
At Bullis, we are committed to honoring our diverse community and cultivating a school culture in which every member feels safe, seen, heard, and valued.
Diversity is celebrated at school events — not just at the big events but in the daily interactions of the students, faculty, and parents.
Joanna served as our keynote speaker and panelist at the National Day of Silence and Education on LGBTQ+. "The individual who stands in their truth during times of challenge and controversy is the person I want to follow," she said during her speech. Joanna educated students about the importance of allyship, leadership, challenging ourselves to consider others' perspectives, and being your authentic self.
Dr. Jackson concluded our Black History Month programming by reminding us that we’re all connected in some form or fashion. He indicated that with the skill sets and obtained knowledge you have, you must do something worthwhile in this world for those who are less fortunate.
Sara Brenner, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Foundation in Greater Washington, D.C., visited our campus to educate us on the ill effects of antisemitism and how we, as a collective, can combat these acts of hate and discrimination towards Jews and other marginalized groups. “Listening with an open mind and heart is the first step to building a more equitable and just society,“ she said about how to combat antisemitism and racism as a whole. “It is essential that we view people as individuals rather than projecting stereotypes onto them.”
