The Winsor School is a diverse, vibrant community that values intellectual curiosity, authentic engagement and personal integrity. We challenge our students to lead lives of purpose as responsible, generous-minded women. The school is committed to employing faculty, staff and administrators who serve as educational leaders in our learning community and who will strive to uphold the school’s mission: to prepare young women to pursue their aspirations and contribute to the world. To support and promote Winsor’s longstanding commitment to diversity, candidates of color are encouraged to apply.
Winsor is committed to supporting a community that models engagement and lifelong learning. We encourage our faculty and staff participate in a wide range of professional development opportunities annually. Some of our most often participated opportunities include but are not limited to the following:
SEED (Seeking Education Equity and Diversity), workshops on combating racism and increasing inclusivity in schools especially. Faculty and staff meet monthly, with readings.
WACR (White Allies Challenging Racism), a Winsor group started over 10 years ago, meets 2x/semester, with readings.
POCC (People of Color Conference), annual NAIS 4-day conference, co-scheduled with SDLC (Student Diversity Leadership Conference), Winsor sends the maximum allowable student participants annually.
Diversity Directions Conference and other summer DEI workshops for educators
Ongoing trips to National Museum of African American Culture and History in Washington DC: 2x/year, groups of 10 faculty/staff (5 groups so far)
This year, our faculty and staff have focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion work including:
March 2020 faculty/staff meeting: reviewed employee diversity and equity survey data and qualitative responses (from fall 2019 survey)

Each summer, the faculty and staff read at least one required book related to diversity, equity, and inclusion practices, and often a second book focused on pedagogy and innovation. Readings form the foundation for focused professional development, invited speakers, and conversations, all of which underscore Winsor's commitment to lifelong learning.
