Diversity at Far Brook

Together, we foster a sense of belonging, and we model and nurture kindness, caring, and respect for one another.

- From the Far Brook School Diversity Statement

Widening the Lens 2017, the Far Brook School Diversity Conference, will take place Saturday, November 11, 2017. This year's topic is LGBTQ+: ILLUMINATING THE SPECTRUM AND CULTIVATING PRIDE. 


CONFERENCE KICK OFF EVENT - Friday, November 10, 2017
Dr. Stephanie Sasso will lead an evening discussion for Far Brook parents on Friday, November 10, 6:30-8:00 PM. Dr. Sasso's presentation will focus on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, the importance of creating environments where students can be their authentic selves, and effective ways to support LGBTQ+ students and families.
Dr. Sasso has spent the past seven years of her practice working with LGBTQ+ adolescents and adults, by providing “…a safe, knowledgeable environment for LGBTQ+-spectrum clients and families…”, and has provided two well-received professional development opportunities for Far Brook faculty this year. Dr. Sasso will also join us for the WTL Conference on November 11, where she will help to facilitate the student group.

Our first Spectrum gathering will be on Monday, October 16. We will begin at 3:30 p.m. and pick-up will be at 5:00 p.m. in the car pool circle.
