Diversity Action Plan
BELMONT HILL SCHOOL DIVERSITY ACTION PLAN: 2020-2025.
Emerging from Belmont Hill’s Strategic Vision of 2018, as well as the implementation of the NAIS Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM) Self-Study in the fall of 2019, the Diversity Committee was charged to create an action plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives at Belmont Hill for the next five years. The intention is that this Plan demonstrates that Belmont Hill’s commitment to Diversity Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives is tangible and real. We sought an Action Plan whose format was succinct, transparent, and measurable. The Plan covers components of gender, sexual orientation, and sexual identity in addition to race, socio-economic class, and other areas.
This document presents the areas of focus and philosophical goals of the Plan. Leaders have been assigned to each focus area and have all provided input into their respective areas of responsibility.
The Plan creates an important framework but is intended to be revisited and updated each summer by the Administrative Team. An additional internal dashboard for the Administration to monitor tactical strategies in achieving these goals has been created and progress will be reported annually to the Board of Trustees.
