Opening Convocation Remarks

Hello Porter’s family. My name is Mariela Vazquez and I’m so excited to share this new school year with you all as Head of Diversity. Collectively, we have had a transformational year thus far, and we carry that within all of us very differently.

Informed

In the face of a global pandemic, a much anticipated U.S. Presidential election, escalating racial tension, staggering inequality, inflammatory and divisive rhetoric, and violence around the globe, it is more important than ever that we focus in on one particular element of our mission – educating young women to become informed.

McKenzie Roller ’20: The Importance of Uplifting the Voices of BIPOC at Porter’s

We spoke with recent Miss Porter’s School graduate McKenzie Roller ’20, who served as tri-head of Porter’s Association for White Anti-Racist Education (AWARE) during her senior year, about her ongoing involvement with AWARE, why this work is important and necessary, and what the group needs to do moving forward. McKenzie explains, “I think the most important thing AWARE can do is to uplift the voices of BIPOC at Porter’s and support their efforts. It is not our voices, white voices, that need to be heard right now
