Dr. Peter S. Lewis, Head of School Announces Director of Diversity, Equity and Justice
I am pleased and honored to announce that Mr. Davor Golub will be taking on the newly created role at Winston of “Director of Diversity, Equity and Justice” in addition to his other responsibilities with the Drama and Theatre Arts program as well as the teaching of Social Studies in grade six. Davor is highly experienced and thoughtful in his understanding of the multiple elements of the ideals and concepts of diversity and will add much to the overall experience and to our internal training and discussions that we engage in at Winston. 
As Davor notes: “As Director of Diversity I aim to support all areas of diversity, equity and justice in our wonderful Winston community. This includes race, gender, sexuality, religion, learning differences, socio-economic and political diversity. Our diversity statement includes many universal truths and ideas and my goal is to ensure that everyone - faculty, students and parents- all experience a sense of acceptance and belonging at Winston.”
The “diversity statement” that Davor refers to was the result of many thoughtful and robust conversations over the past year involving staff, Board and Winston parents—as well as students--and the words and ideas within the statement express clearly and succinctly the Winston School’s approach to the concept of diversity alongside principles of equity and justice. 
I look forward to sharing with you-alongside Davor-further updates and thoughts on diversity training and conversations at our school.
