Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging

Our DEIB Commitments 

→ We are committed to sustaining a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for both the children and families in our community.

→ We expect intellectual flexibility and agility, creativity, teamwork, comfort with complexity and ambiguity, experience with diversity, and, above all, character and honor among not just our students, but our faculty, staff, and members of our leadership team as well as our Board of Trustees. 

→ We believe intellectual engagement occurs most effectively in a multicultural environment.

→ We value and celebrate a broad definition of diversity that includes the social identifiers outlined by NAIS.

The purpose of the DEI Progress Report is to maintain an ongoing accounting of the school's DEI initiatives, including the hiring and retention of faculty and staff, student enrollment and admission, curriculum, and professional development. See how the School is doing.

Pingry's Mission Statement of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The Pingry School is committed to sustaining a welcoming and supportive environment both for children and families in its community and those interested in joining the Pingry family. Honoring our legacy and defining our future, the Pingry community values and celebrates a broad definition of diversity that includes ethnicity, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. Recognizing that the only constant in the world of tomorrow will be change, effective leadership will demand intellectual flexibility and agility, creativity, teamwork, comfort with complexity and ambiguity, experience with diversity, and, above all, character and honor. As we prepare our students to claim their place as leaders in the 21st century, it is essential that their intellectual engagement occur in a multicultural environment. Daily experiences with differing perspectives of our larger society, while leaning firmly into that which can be a source of discomfort, will prepare our graduates to thrive as culturally competent individuals in a multicultural world.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) education is a critical component in Pingry's  vision of "preparing students to be global citizens and leaders in the 21st century." DEIB work must be embedded in everything we do. This work belongs to all of us, and, as we aspire to be an anti-racist school community, we must work with all of our stakeholders to achieve our goals.
