November 17, 2021 | 1 Comment

In its continued effort to educate and advocate for Human Rights, the Warwick Academy Human Rights Friendly School Project conducted a series of Equity Webinars to its parents and staff, and it is now delighted to give the general public free access to the Webinar recordings throughout the month of November 2021.

A spokesperson said, “In its continued effort to educate and advocate for Human Rights, the Warwick Academy Human Rights Friendly School Project conducted a series of Equity Webinars to its parents and staff. It is now delighted to give the general public free access to the Webinar recordings throughout the month of November 2021. More than 200 enthusiastic persons participated in the 3 Virtual Panel Discussions which were organized over a period of 3 weeks in October 2021.

“The intent was to explore black and mixed-race student identity and dismantle some of the existing stereotypes around children of color” commented Francoise Palau-Wolffe, Warwick Academy Human Rights Project Co-ordinator.

“The series was composed of three talks entitled “Boyz to Men: Raising Black Boys in Bermuda”; “Black Girl Magic” and “What about the Mixed Child?” and featured prominent members of the community who had a link to the School.

“When selecting panelists, I ensured that each speaker could bring a unique perspective to our discussion” added Mrs. Palau-Wolffe. “It was important for me to select individuals associated with our Warwick Academy community to emphasize the richness and diversity of our school community”.

“Gary Moreno, Maya Palacio of Media Maya and Rebeka Sousa from Warwick Academy moderated the Webinars which generated candid presentations by the panelists. This initiative was part of the anti-racism campaign launched by the Human Rights Student Committee in 2021.

“Mrs. Palau-Wolffe was overwhelmed by the generosity of the speakers who volunteered their time on this occasion and did not hesitate to contribute to this crucial cpnversation. She also recognizes the support of the Warwick Academy School Management Team since the inception of the Human Rights Project in 2013 and the Warwick Academy Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee for its expertise and guidance over the past two years. “The creation of this committee co-chaired by Board Member, Katherine McDonnell has been an invaluable asset to our school. Thanks to their commitment and hard work, a school diversity audit was conducted last year which allowed us to dig deeper into the equity and Human Rights work started eight years ago. ”

As Dave Horan, Warwick Academy Principal, commented at the conclusion of the Equity Webinars “We strongly believe that this type of conversation should not be a one off and that it should be embedded in all that we do”.

“If you wish to access the Warwick Academy Equity Webinars, please contact Mrs. Francoise Palau-Wolffe, WA Human Rights Co-ordinator, directly at fwolffe@warwick.bm.”
