Matt Balano Diversity & Inclusion Director/Thacher
What Does A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion Look Like?

In the fall of 2013, Thacher entered into a strategic partnership with Jones & Associates, a consulting firm dedicated to improving communities and their leaders through inclusion, diversity, and awareness. 

Advancing these efforts is Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Matt Balano, a recognized leader with many years of experience making secondary schools more diverse, inclusive, and equitable. Some of our recent work on this front has focused on hiring initiatives to increase the number of faculty of color on campus, admission outreach to communities of color, the creation of a Faculty/Staff Diversity Council, and a range of student programming.
