Exit Signs: Why Faculty of Color Leave Their Schools (for Heads of School only)

Despite expressed desires to diversify their faculty and administration, racial diversity remains elusive within many boarding schools. Join Dr. James Greenwood, Dean of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Western Reserve Academy, and fellow TABS Heads of School to explore responses from faculty of color on why and how they ultimately chose to leave their schools, and to explore what school leaders can do to better support and retain faculty of color in our communities.

This event is included in your TABS member dues.
