Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Harpeth Hall Values Statement identifies respect, integrity, individuality, and trust as the guiding principles in our work educating girls. These values reflect our commitment to providing a rewarding and equitable experience for all students, families, faculty, and staff. The population growth in Nashville and outreach efforts of the admissions team have contributed to the diversity of our applicant pools and student population. Our school community is enriched by diversity as defined by age, ability, race and ethnicity, gender, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
The school works to advance the dialogue around equity and inclusion. Professional development opportunities have been offered both on and off campus to empower all members of the Harpeth Hall community to grow in their cultural competence. The Head’s Committee on Equity and Inclusion was created in 2016 and is co-chaired by the Head of School and Director of Community Support, Development, and Inclusion. Committee members include faculty, administrators, and staff. The group facilitates conversations and initiatives around the following three areas:
- Recruitment and Retention
The Harpeth Hall School does not discriminate in hiring or employment practices on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or any other characteristic protected under applicable state and federal law.
