Global Week

Each January, Castilleja School hosts Global Week to provide students with a unique opportunity to examine a globally relevant topic through workshops, projects, and in-depth engagement with speakers.

As antiracist learners and practitioners in an increasingly polarized world, we must seek diverse perspectives and multiple narratives in the information we consume. Moreover, we must prioritize historically marginalized voices in our collective discourse in order to understand the complexity of an issue and work towards an equitable society. Inclusive Journalism explores stories and viewpoints that remain untold or underrepresented in mainstream media and reinforces our commitment to equity, inclusion, and justice. 

  • Whose stories are often overlooked by mainstream media, and why?

  • How do we engage voices from underrepresented communities in the news and other media?

  • Why do today’s societies need inclusive journalism more than ever before?

Global Week 2023 will be a 4-day experience from Tuesday, January 3 to Friday, January 6, 2023.
