    SEED Seminar

    SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) Redwood Day is one of a growing number of schools across the globe participating in the 35 year old SEED Project, founded by Peggy McIntosh, at the Wellesley Centers for Women. SEED participants seek to examine our own lives/backgrounds and to learn about others in order to create a community where all members are supported and valued. Participants engage in activities, readings, and films that focus on diversity and connection. Learning more about ourselves and listening to each other helps create and support a more balanced, equitable, inclusive and understanding community. SEED is open to all Redwood Day faculty/staff and is co-facilitated by Jodi Freedman and Ash Black. For more information, please contact Meredith Spencer, Director of Equity and Inclusion.
