Community Identifies Need

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is central to Highline’s mission and vision. 

The Highline community was seeking opportunities for its staff, students, parents and community members to grow and tackle unconscious bias and discriminatory practices.

Partner Response

Highline Academy partnered with Dr. Aaron Griffen to host two workshops, one for parents and another for students, to provide a space where they could unpack their lived experiences and gain new tools to navigate difficult conversations about race and racism. 


Students, parents and educators give the training high marks. Highline is eager to continue offering these DEI learning opportunities as it seeks to become a leader in creating equity in education.  See a video on the initiative here.
