MIT and MIT Sloan’s Office of DEI help create and share tools and resources for faculty, staff, students, and alumni. They're derived from and have been developed with the support of the Institute's Action Plan.
We've developed an annual progress report. It includes information on MIT's history with DEI, the actions it's taken to create and sustain a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive institution, and the kinds of interesting and important projects we've planned for the future.
MIT Sloan's Career Development Office (CDO) offers its "Writing the Code: Telling Our Stories" series of events. The series highlights the career stories and experiences of community members who hail from historically marginalized communities.
MIT Sloan's Office of Admissions is committed to increasing its engagement with minority-serving institutions (MSIs) like Native American-serving Non-Tribal Institutions (NASNTIs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs), and others. From our attendance and outreach efforts at HBCU graduate school fairs to partnerships with organizations like Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), Leadership Brainery, Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and the Jumpstart Advisory Group, we're focused on widening existing pathways to access and building new ones.
Solutions to Create a More Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive MIT Sloan
MIT Sloan’s Open+Inclusive (O+I) workshops are for MIT Sloan faculty and staff. This MIT Sloan-grown initiative features interactive sessions designed to illustrate pervasive biases associated with team performance and provide tools for addressing them.
Developed using research produced by MIT Sloan faculty and partners from peer institutions, they’re meant to be widely accessible and useful to professionals at all levels of an organization. You must be an MIT employee to participate.
Get Ready for Open+Inclusive
MIT Sloan also offers extended learning opportunities built around O+I’s core concepts.
We've learned that Open+Inclusive networks can improve organizational performance, increase efficiency, generate valuable ideas, and help increase employee engagement.
RealTalk at MIT
RealTalk at MIT is a resource for MIT Sloan faculty and staff. It’s a space built for the MIT community to have nuanced and authentic conversation. The RealTalk process will help uncover successes, challenges, and opportunities for continuous improvement. We’re building a communication infrastructure to inform decisions that can improve the quality of life inside the Institute. You must be an MIT employee to participate.
