Holton's DEI & Belonging Roadmap to Anti-Racist Education

In 2015 Holton designated Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) as a School-wide priority. Since then, we have created a senior administrative position devoted to diversity (now the Director of Diversity, Wellbeing & Global Education), created a schoolwide faculty and staff committee, TIDE (Towards Inclusion Diversity and Equity); established a Board level Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee; rewrote and the Board of Trustees approved the Diversity Mission Statement; established a Parent Association Vice-President of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; created and implemented Learn Well, Live Well, Lead Well Seminar (see description below); engaged in extensive professional development for faculty and staff (led by outside consultants as well as in-house leaders); organized and implemented student-run annual diversity conferences for Middle and Upper School; and introduced affinity groups in the Lower School. You can read more about our progress in the 2019-2020 Annual Report for the Office of Diversity, Wellbeing, and Global Education. Additional Annual Reports can be found here: 2018-2019, 2017-2018 and 2016-2017

Below we have articulated our action steps for School Year 2020-2021 towards each of the priorities we’ve outlined in our Diversity Mission Statement and our commitment to anti-racist education.
