State of the Diversity Practice in Independent Schools
Torres, Amada
Independent School, v74 n2 Win 2015
During the spring of 2014, the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) commissioned Insightlink Communications, a market research firm, to conduct the second survey on the state of the diversity practice in independent schools. The goals of the study included defining the roles played by diversity practitioners, their functions, and their responsibilities; understanding how diversity is being implemented at independent schools; and identifying the demographic characteristics and backgrounds of diversity practitioners. Given the importance that diversity has in schools, the workforce, and in our communities in general, this study is designed to expand the resources available to diversity practitioners within independent schools. By understanding the challenges, successes, and needs of the professionals working in this area, independent schools will be better suited to offer diversity practitioners the support needed to be effective and successful in their roles.
