Diversity & Inclusion Committee Work in 2018
In January/February 2018 the Diversity & Inclusion Committee engaged a 3rd party consultant, Single Story, Inc., to perform a Diversity & Inclusion study at Ogden. It is a 2-part initiative: survey and focus groups. The purpose of the survey is to collect raw data from participants about their perspective of the school's diversity efforts. The focus groups allow for the quantitative data collection in a safe environment. This data will allow Single Story, Inc to develop a multi-year framework that will help to strengthen Ogden and make our school a more inclusive learning involvement for our ever-growing diverse community.

The data from the AMID survey can convert thoughts, ideas, and assumed best practices into benchmarked numbers for real goal setting. This type of initiative by Ogden is a game-changer – it definitely is a differentiating factor for our school and the direction we are heading as we create true Global Citizens.
This evaluation will help Ogden shine a light on topics that include:
