This week, Mercy conducted three very informative virtual listening sessions for alumnae, current students, and current parents titled: ‘Racism – Working to Make Mercy an Agent of Change.’ During the sessions, Mercy administration, faculty, and board members listened to the concerns of the participants, as well as their ideas for change and action. The sessions were facilitated by Linda Dickey, M.S., Chair of the Cheryl Speranza Leadership Institute at Mercy.
Inspired by the passion of those who participated in the sessions, as well as those who reached out to us via email and social media, Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women has recommitted itself to the Critical Concern of Racism. We have pledged ourselves to be actively anti-racist and fight against systemic oppression, including within our own institution. The first action step Mercy has taken is to listen better, and while these sessions may be over, we are not done listening – or acting. Every step we take is critical in our shared quest to help end racism.
