Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Pennington School is committed to diversity in its curriculum, faculty, staff, and student body.

Social justice is an ongoing discussion in Chapel, in classrooms, and in the hallways. We differ in race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical and learning differences, gender identity and expression, religion, and socioeconomic class.

But we share common values, goals, history, and relationships.

The purpose of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Office is to enrich our School through increased knowledge of, respect for, and cooperation among different cultures and a valuing of diverse perspectives within our community, by addressing issues of prejudice about race and ethnicity, gender, age, physical and learning differences, sexual orientation, gender expression and identity, religion, and class. We provide leadership and safe spaces to discuss diversity in all its forms at The Pennington School, for both our students and our faculty and staff. The overall goal is to help students, staff, faculty, and administrators transcend differences while recognizing common values, goals, history, and relationships.

Important Resources 

Our community has been facing the difficult truths of America’s relationship with race and justice. Our students, faculty, and staff have been working together to make sense of the world we live in, and together we aim to make it better. As an educational institution, we want to emphasize that so much of this work happens through education, and that education cannot end at the end of the school day or year. With that point in mind, we want to share some resources so that you can continue these important conversations at home and empower your children to be the change they wish to see in the world.
