Commitment to Faculty and Staff Diversity

We continue to update policies and practices and have made the hiring of a diverse faculty and staff an institutional priority for the school.

  • Merion Mercy has hired three outstanding faculty of color in the 2020-21 school year.
  • Merion Mercy joined Nemnet, a firm specializing in assisting schools and organizations in the recruitment and retention of diverse teachers, administrators and coaches.
  • Our Recruitment and Hiring Guide has been rewritten to mandate that all job descriptions include: 
    • School information in summary form
    • Position title
    • Full time/part time 
    • Scope of the requirements/duties 
    • Minimum preferred professional qualifications for the position
  • A job description was developed and posted for the Director of Equity and Inclusion and sent to all alumnae.
  • The search committee for the Director of Equity and Inclusion participated in a training on implicit bias in hiring by DEI consultant Trina Gary and used guidelines from the training to develop a candidate screening form.
