Mercy to Host Listening Sessions
Mercy is committed to working to be actively anti-racist and fight against systemic oppression, including within our own institution. It is clear that many feel we have failed in the past with empty words and inaction; we can and must do better.
The first action step Mercy is taking is to listen better. We are conducting three virtual listening sessions – with alumnae, current students, and current parents – to hear their concerns and ideas for change and action. The sessions, ‘Racism – Working to Make Mercy an Agent of Change,’ will be facilitated by Linda Dickey, MS, Chair of the Cheryl Speranza Leadership Institute.
One thing is clear to us – there is much more work Mercy needs to do to be an agent of change. Every step we take is critical if Mercy is going to be a leader in our shared quest to help end racism. Visit www.mercyhs.com/listen to register before Saturday, June 20 at midnight.
