Girls of Color

Girls of Color - Denim Day 2023The Gender & Identity Inclusion department is dedicated to the overall success and achievement of girls of color here in Milwaukee Public Schools. We have the unique opportunity to create programs, professional development opportunities and connect resources to the district all in support of the advancement of our youth.

Data highlights that girls of color experience school discipline, sexual assault, adverse childhood traumas, and other social emotional challenges at alarming disproportionate rates compared to their white counterparts. School’s may contact the department of Gender & Identity Inclusion (GII) for affirming support, resources and programming for their girls of color students in Milwaukee Public Schools, as well as professional development for staff, teachers and administration. The Coordinator for Girls of Color through the GII department is also available to:

  • Girls of Color ProgramServe as a resource, consultant, and liaison to administrative teams, and school communities
  • Support schools, teachers, and support staff in implementation of professional development opportunities specifically related to understanding, supporting and empowering girls of color
  • Train staff members on how to create and implement a strong girls of color program/group on site

Additional support is provided as needed. To learn more about our girls of color programs, trainings and partnership please contact Glenna Scholle-Malone at
