Council on Staff Diversity and Inclusion

The Council on Staff Diversity and Inclusion is an advisory body charged with encouraging and informing efforts to utilize the diversity of MIT's staff to advance the work of departments, laboratories, and centers. The diversity of staff includes racial, cultural, demographic, cognitive, and technical characteristics.

The Council on Staff Diversity and Inclusion provides a forum for identifying sharing, and implementing effective diversity management programs and practices; encourages new programs and practices; and recognizes successful efforts. It also identifies and suggests ways to address problems and concerns related to equal employment opportunity and works to create synergy among faculty, staff, and student diversity management efforts. The Executive Vice President and the Vice President for Human Resources are the Council's executive sponsors.
