Director of Diversity and Inclusion Search Process
November 7, 2019
Dear Pingry Community,
In his August 26 letter, Head of School Matt Levinson P '21 provided an update on Diversity and Inclusion. He shared that The Board of Trustees Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, the Administrative Team, and a Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Team are driving our work in Diversity and Inclusion. He also announced that Alison Park from Blink Consulting will partner closely with these groups to assess, evaluate, and craft the School's D&I strategic direction.
As the search process for Pingry’s next Director of Diversity and Inclusion gets underway, we have decided to work with Storbeck/Pimentel & Associates, LP, a national executive search firm with extensive experience in leadership searches for colleges, universities, independent schools, and nonprofits. I am writing to invite your participation in a feedback opportunity. We have arranged for associates from Storbeck and Pimentel to meet with parents in an open session to provide input on qualities or attributes that you feel are most critical for our next Director of Diversity and Inclusion to possess and what you would most like to see strengthened in the D&I program, among other related topics. Kindly RSVP by Monday, November 11 to one of the open parent sessions that are scheduled as follows:
• Short Hills Campus: Wednesday, November 13, 7:15 p.m.–8:15 p.m. in the Grades 3/4 Commons
• Basking Ridge Campus: Thursday, November 14, 8:00 a.m.–9:00 a.m. in Multipurpose Room 305B, adjacent the Admission Office
Note: Parents may attend either session based on convenience, regardless of the campus their child(ren) attends.
Your feedback will be invaluable as we begin to develop a formal position specification and evaluate candidates. We are committed to listening to you and to ensuring a robust search process that is responsive to the needs of the Pingry community.
Thank you in advance for your time and your involvement in this important process.
Dr. Delvin Dinkins
Director of Diversity & Inclusion Search Committee Chair
Assistant Head of School–Basking Ridge Campus
