Parent Evening with Schuyler Bailar
Thursday, October 3 at 6:30 p.m.
The Brandeis School of San Francisco, 655 Brotherhood Way, San Francisco, CA 94132
Brandeis will be hosting a parent evening with Schuyler Bailar
, the first openly transgender athlete to compete in a NCAA Division I men's sport (on the Harvard men’s swim team). His story focuses on the universal challenges of trying to "fit-in" in our media-rich world with integrity and authenticity. His talk focuses on his struggles and why he ultimately chose to put many potential accolades at risk to be true to himself. Because he has lived his life from many perspectives—woman, Korean American, mixed race, gay, trans, “Harvard white guy”—his story resonates with the young and old, and people from all walks of life. Schuyler’s visit is part of our school’s initiative around equity and inclusion, and is being spearheaded by our equity and inclusion committee. We invite your families to join us for this informative and engaging evening.
