Equity & Inclusion Student Groups

Whitfield Affinity Groups are student clubs for students who share an identity, background, or affiliation. These facilitated groups enable students to explore and reflect on their own identity, to celebrate shared culture and traditions, and to discuss common experiences, needs, and challenges. Affinity groups also offer an opportunity for mentorship, support, and community building. These are voluntary groups for students who identify with these affinities or who act as allies.

In addition, Whitfield’s Diversity Awareness Club provides an opportunity for students to explore issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and cultural competence and to contribute to the creation of a more diverse and inclusive community.

Diversity Awareness Club

The Diversity Awareness Club organizes and implements initiatives to educate students in matters pertaining to diversity and inclusion with topics chosen by students. Members act as liaisons to grade levels and provide a student voice in discussions and initiatives as appropriate. Open to all middle school and high school students.

Black Student Union

The purpose of the Black Student Union is to provide a safe space for Whitfield's Black/African American students to share experiences based on racial identity and cultural background and to find support and camaraderie to further explore their own identity. The club is open to all middle and upper school students who self-identify as Black/African American.

Gender & Sexuality Alliance

The purpose of the Gender & Sexuality Alliance (GSA) is to create a social and supportive space for all students wishing to dialogue and learn about sexual orientation, gender identity, and related issues. The GSA promotes value and respect for everyone. Open to all middle school and upper school students.

International Student Union

International Student Union (ISU) is open to all students in grades 6-12. The purpose of the group is two-fold: it provides a space for Whitfield international students to share experiences that influence integrating into American culture, and it creates the opportunity to celebrate and share with other group members and classmates the many cultures from around the world that make up our student body.

Jewish Student Union

The Jewish Student Union (JSU) is open to both Jewish and non-Jewish students. Members meet twice a month to to inspire teens of all backgrounds to explore contemporary issues in fun and meaningful ways.
