Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We see you. We stand with you. We support you.

As a group of individuals and as an office, we stand with our students against racial injustice.

We serve as your career advisors, and we also stand as your allies.

We see you, we stand with you, and we are actively working to support these intentions with action.

Building a More Inclusive Community – at MIT Sloan and Beyond

Our Commitment to Diversity is guided by MIT Sloan’s Report of the Diversity & Inclusion Task Force and MIT Sloan’s statements of support for our friends and colleagues of color.

We are inspired by the thought leadership and action orientation of our Associate Deans, Ray Reagans and Fiona Murray, and the impact of their work on both curriculum and community.

We have renewed appreciation for our students’ personal experiences and see ourselves as active allies and partners in this work, particularly related to systemic bias in hiring and building more inclusive and equitable workplaces.

 

Taking Action to Broaden Perspectives and Engage New Voices

In order to drive change, we understand that our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion must be intentional, ubiquitous, sustained, and systemic.

Over the summer, we strengthened our commitment by:

  • Engaging in employer conversations led by our Associate Deans for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Professors Ray Reagans & Fiona Murray

  • Convening a CDO DEI working group and full staff retreat

  • Partnering with a newly formed alumni affinity council

  • Working with both HR and our Associate Deans on a broader talent strategy

We recognize the growth mindset required to make changes and we are aligned in our shared commitment to build a more inclusive community.

  Nobody has all the answers.  That’s why we have each other.

We had hoped to share this powerful piece of art with our community last March, but perhaps its meaning is even more powerful today.

We know that we don’t have all of the answers but are grateful to learn from each other and to engage in building a constructive culture.
