Germantown Friends School, a progressive Quaker school EC-12, seeks a Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to build on its tradition of excellence and leadership in diversity education. The GFS community, from its faculty to its Head to its School Committee, believes that there is a Divine Light in everyone. Commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, a natural outgrowth of our mission, runs deep at GFS.

The Director of Diversity will report directly to the Associate Head of School in this twelve-month position. The Director will collaborate with the Associate Head of School, the Director of Academic Program, Directors of Division, Admissions, Community Engagement, and College Guidance to provide consistent, comprehensive programming. The Director will focus on students, ensuring that support, opportunities for engagement, leadership programming and resources, are available and easily accessed by them and their families. The Director will ensure that our processes provide support to our students at all phases of their GFS experience. The Director will also ensure that the faculty and staff receive the support and leadership necessary to enacting our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Finally, the Director will work to develop and implement programming to enact the directives of various grants and endowments, particularly our EE Ford Grant, our celebrated Community Scholars Program, and the fund which supports student auxiliary expenses, the Rubenstone Fund.
