Unity Day is a new GFS Diversity Conference where Upper School students and faculty and staff will work towards unity of heart through diversity of mind. Various 1-hour workshops will be offered by students and faculty and staff on topics relating to social justice and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Unity Day 2019 will be held on Friday, April 19.
All Upper School students are invited to submit a proposal for a workshop. They may collaborate with other students or faculty or staff.
