Role of the Board of Trustees
We are also grateful for, and indebted to, the Board of Trustees. Following the formation of the DEI Task Force in the spring of 2020, the Board elevated the School’s DEI work to a Strategic Plan and, on January 9, 2021, adopted the Plan’s Vision, Preamble and Goals, reflecting the Board’s commitment to the School’s work in this area. Over the course of this year, the Task Force has partnered with the Administration in its efforts to finalize the plan. The Board will further support the DEI Plan by ensuring that resources are available and will hold the Administration accountable for consistent, comprehensive, and effective implementation of the Plan’s strategies and tactics.
