Strategic Inclusion Plan

In January 2022, as part of Catlin Gabel’s ongoing work to sharpen our focus on the most urgent priorities related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we published a three-year Strategic Inclusion Plan to guide our efforts until Fall of 2024.

The Strategic Inclusion Plan was based on input and suggestions from our constituents over eight months. This Plan is designed to provide transparency and accountability on our inclusion goals and desired outcomes. This work is rooted in Catlin Gabel's antiracism vision, which was announced in 2020, as part of our commitment to creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive school.

Material to our success is creating conditions that support the campus climate now and in the future. The responsibility for creating these conditions is primarily that of the Inclusion Leadership Team, which includes the Head of School, Assistant Head, Director of Equity and Inclusion, Director of Community Engagement, and the Assistant Head of Enrollment and External Relations, with support from the Board of Trustees and the Parent Faculty Association.

The Plan focuses on specific actions that we believe are most needed and will most benefit our students. It is not intended to include all of the school’s DEI work in any given year, and prioritizing these goals does not mean other DEI work stops.

It is also important to recognize that progress rarely follows a linear path forward; instead, it evolves over time.

We will report on each of our goals in the fall of 2022, 2023, and 2024.

Ensure the curriculum, teaching methods, and school culture reflect our commitment to DEI.
