Affinity Groups

Affinity Groups are a natural part of our human experience. Every day we create and join groups with those whom we share a common interest, history, or experience based on race, religion, political affiliation, gender, sexual orientation, age, profession, and interests. Bryn Mawr School itself is an Affinity Based educational setting, designed to combat the gender inequities that continue to plague our world, country and communities. In affinity groups, participants’ individual voices evolve into a collective story that affirms, connects, educates, and empowers its members. Participation in such groups is based on one’s ability to speak from the “I” perspective.
