Diversity + Inclusion

Ideas + Actions = Impact

Since Spring 2020, we have taken active steps towards building diversity, equity, and inclusion at MIT Sloan. This is a selection of the efforts underway, with more to come.

  • Launched a search for a director of diversity, equity, and inclusion 
  • Introduced pre-orientation for the MBA program focused on diversity and community
  • Held orientation sessions to engage students in a dialogue about race
  • Examined implicit bias as a theme in MBA core classes
  • Collaborated with other schools in creating a pre-doctoral program to diversify the PhD pipeline
  • Partnered with MIT Engineering to recruit undergraduates from underrepresented populations to MIT Sloan programs
  • Hosted a series of Inclusive Innovation Conversations to engage the community in conversations with leaders from business, the public sector, and non-profits about building a more inclusive innovation economy
  • Listened and learned at student and staff-led events like the BBSA town hall and Sloan Women for Women's "Black Women at MIT Sloan: Unseen and Unheard" seminar
  • Adapted our admissions interview process to reduce opportunities for bias to influence outcomes
  • Began working with a consultancy to provide staff training in conversations about race
  • Convened Staff Matters, Faculty Matters, Student Matters, and Alumni Matters working groups
