The Children's School Expands Its Summer Master Class in Inclusive Leadership

Beginning September 2017, Nishant Mehta, TCS Head of School, will host a monthly social and book club for current and aspiring school leaders of color and their allies and advocates. This series is an extension of the Master Class in Inclusive Leadership. Participation is free, however we will cap attendance at each event to promote a robust discussion and community of learners and leaders.

November's Book Selection: We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates (Ch. 1-4)

We will only read chapters 1-4 in November.


From Amazon.com: "We were eight years in power” was the lament of Reconstruction-era black politicians as the American experiment in multiracial democracy ended with the return of white supremacist rule in the South. In this sweeping collection of new and selected essays, Ta-Nehisi Coates explores the tragic echoes of that history in our own time: the unprecedented election of a black president followed by a vicious backlash that fueled the election of the man Coates argues is America’s “first white president."

January's Book Selection: Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change by Ellen Pao

From Amazon.com: "From a 'feminist hero' (Elle, The Guardian) comes a fearless firsthand account of the workplace discrimination suit that "has blown open a conversation about the status of women" (The New York Times) in the tech industry. This is the story of a determined activist using her voice to empower everyone who struggles to be heard."
