Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
MIT Sloan works to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment through partnering with MIT community members and outside organizations. The MIT Sloan Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s mission is to create proactive, research-supported initiatives and programs that promote MIT’s Values. We develop engagement and learning opportunities that help us design and deliver data-driven solutions to advance systemic change. MIT Sloan’s Career Development Office holds its “Writing the Code: Telling Our Stories” career workshop series that focuses on the stories of alumni from historically marginalized communities. In addition, our Admissions Office partners with minority-serving institutions (MSIs) like Native American-serving Non-Tribal Institutions (NASNTIs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs) to recruit students from underrepresented backgrounds.
MIT Sloan and other business schools are working to create admissions opportunities for students in African countries.
We still have a long way to go before diversity is made a priority for all, but Guadalupe Hayes-Mota, SB ’08, LGO ’16, believes it is worth the effort because representation matters.
In April, the MIT Alumni Association announced the winners of the volunteer leadership awards, which honor outstanding accomplishments and service to the MITAA and the Institute. Among the 2023 award recipients were five MIT Sloan alumni.
