Katherine Dinh, Head of School, Marin Country Day School (CA)
Greg Schneider, Head of School, Belmont Hill School (MA)
In this workshop, participants will engage in large and small group discussions about the challenges that we face as heads trying to lead through the two pandemics: COVID-19 and racial inequity. The facilitators will share relevant stories that they have experienced at their schools, and the DEIB initiatives that they have led. Participants will also be invited to share their own leadership challenges in the context of DEIB issues, and to speak in small groups with others to gain ideas, perspectives, and empathy.
The facilitators offer views on K – 8 and 7 – 12 settings, and provide their own personal experiences as two heads who identify differently in gender and race. We invite participants to join us in a conversation about the complexities and inspiration gained by leading through the two pandemics.
