In Episcopal schools, we are informed by the Baptismal Covenant which calls us to serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves. The work of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Episcopal schools is not a passing fad—or merely an opportunity to signal values—but something that shows our deep commitment to respecting the dignity of every human being.

As stated by the NAES Governing Board, "Episcopal schools are places where people from all different types of perspectives and traditions show up and engage in the joyful process of learning." As your school prepares to "run the race with perseverance" (Hebrews 12:1), please join NAES and your fellow Episcopal educators in Baltimore for three days of workshops, keynotes, worship, and networking.

Why This Work?

Episcopal schools ground their commitment to diversity, inclusion, justice and equity in the words of the Baptismal Covenant, and our promise as Christians to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself,” and, “to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” That pledge to respect the dignity of every human being includes how we differ from one another, as well as how we share a common humanity and reflect the image of God. It serves as a guide to our daily need to act with compassion, love and integrity, as well as to name and challenge behaviors that promote exclusion, intolerance, and mistrust.
