Guest Speaker Challenges Students to Seek Out Diverse Perspectives
The Diversity Committee hosted a Senior School advisor morning last fall with Nora Loreto, a Canadian journalist and activist. Following her talk there was an incredible amount of student engagement, in which many questioned, passionately agreed with, or challenged some of the ideas she discussed. As a committee, they decided that the best course of action would be to continue an important conversation by hosting a followup Q&A to get students’ questions answered.
According to Neyla Kirby '22, the Student Coordinator for Diversity Committee who conducted the follow up Q&A interview, "What stood out to me about Ms. Loreto was her own active effort to challenge her beliefs and opinions in seeking out diverse perspectives through media and conversations. It is only in being challenged and engaging with different opinions that we are able to develop our own sense of perspective and understanding of the greater picture, as Ms. Loreto pushed us all to do during her talk."

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
