Creating a More Gender-Inclusive Admission Process
Date & Time
Friday, September 16, 2022, 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM

Admission officers from The Bishop’s School (CA), Fay School (MA), and Phillips Academy Andover (MA) will share the steps they took, and continue to take, to become more gender-inclusive in their admission processes. In order to authentically recruit and enroll students who identify as non-binary and transgender, admission offices need to take a hard look at their processes with respect to gender inclusivity. Inspired by their own experiences with gender-expansive students, both personally and professionally, these schools have made changes to their communication sequences and student admission experiences. Participants will come away from this workshop with concrete actionable items to help make their own admission practices more inclusive. The presenters hope to create an honest, open discussion about how to better serve these students.
