"We're developing and delivering solutions to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive MIT Sloan." - Bryan Thomas, Assistant Dean, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We've developed a progress report we'll update annually. The progress report 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.

Admissions Outreach

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. These interactive sessions are 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.
