Parents Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee

The Parents DEI Committee operates under the auspices of the Parents’ Association and is dedicated to promoting and advocating for increased diversity and sensitivity to differences among Gaynor school families. Stephen Gaynor School itself is a special community of children who learn differently, and this committee addresses many types of diversity within our community.

The committee hopes to serve and celebrate the many types of diversity within the Stephen Gaynor School community including: ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, ability, religion, sexual orientation, family configuration, language, gender, and adoption status. The Parents DEI Committee works with the school’s Employee Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, which is dedicated to creating a rich environment for learning for all students.

Dr. Andrew Solomon, author of best-seller Far From the Tree, and Jacqueline Woodson, author of Brown Girl Dreaming, are some of the guest speakers that the PA’s Diversity Committee and Stephen Gaynor School have hosted.
