Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


In March of this year, 16 students and two adults spent a week in March in both an online immersion experience with the global UN Commission on the Status of Women network and in person with Denver-area organizations that promote and support women. The delegation participated in webinars and online presentations throughout the conference, including a direct discussion with the UN Youth Ambassador, as well as visited and learned more about several local organizations that share in the mission of promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women.
The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women is a gathering of people from all over the world to discuss the work being done to promote the access and participation of women and girls in education, training, science and technology, including the promotion of women’s equal access to full employment. The commission has been taking place for the last 26 years through the subcommittee UN Women. Regis Jesuit's participation allows us to engage in this global social justice issue through dialogue with people from all over the world and bring what we learned back to our school community. 

While conventionally an in-person trip to the United Nations in New York City, both last year's and this year's delegations participated virtually in the UN CSW’s programming due to health and safety concerns surrounding COVID-19. In 2021, the delegation gathered on the Regis Jesuit campus to attend virtual sessions. This year, students enjoyed a hybrid experience of the conference, attending sessions virtually while also engaging in person with different organizations here in Denver working towards the same goals as UN Women. These organizations include Regis University, The Denver Center for Performing Arts, Comal Heritage Food Incubator, CIRCLE/STAMP, Florence Crittenton School, Re:Vision and the Women’s Homeless Initiative through the Regis University Safe Outdoor Space. This year’s hybrid experience provided a meaningful and impactful opportunity for our students to explore these important issues more closely.
