Who Are We?

The Mitchell Diversity and Equity Committee aims to further support the Jeffco Office of Diversity and Inclusion in their mission to infuse awareness and attention to the needs of diverse learners and their communities, right here at Mitchell Elementary School.

Jeffco embraces and honors diversity in all forms, including: race, ethnicity, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ability and disability. The Diversity and Inclusion Office supports the district focus of infusing awareness and attention to the needs of diverse learners into the work of every school and department.

What is Our Mission?

Mitchell Diversity and Equity Committee seeks to bring awareness and understanding and to promote inclusion across all dimensions of diversity including gender, religious beliefs, race, marital status, ethnicity, family structure, age, education, physical and mental ability, income, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, occupation, language, geographic location, and many more.

What Are We Doing?

Mitchell Diversity and Equity Committee is promoting inclusion and awareness by adding value to the school library, book room, classroom activities, and by promoting heritage appreciation through participation in the Multicultural Night and Heritage Festival. Learning and understanding Diversity and Equity topics is an ongoing and evolving process in which we hope that our efforts to grow will allow the Mitchell Elementary community to flourish.
