Welcome to the Office of Diversity
Through ongoing conversations with district leaders, faculty, staff, students and community partners, the Office of Diversity will be developing goals and strategies for moving Berkeley County School District toward its goal of diversity and multicultural inclusive excellence.
Berkeley County School District promotes a welcoming and supportive environment that celebrates and values diversity and respect for all students, employees and stakeholders. The district is also committed to doing business with contractors, vendors and other suppliers who reflect and value the diversity of our community. It is important for all voices to be heard across the school district and for stakeholders to see that intentional efforts are being made to address challenges and opportunities for growth related to diversity, multiculturalism and inclusion.
Volvo has pledged $10,000 to the program. Google will award $11,760 to the team, and Berkeley Electric Co-Op has pledged a $1,000 commitment for the expansion of the team.
Members are identified through a rigorous process including nominations from existing Riley Fellows, application, and interview. Individuals are selected to join the class based on their capacity to impact their organizations and communities.
