Diversity and Inclusion

Human Resources
Building E19, Room 215

Our goal at MIT is to build a balanced workforce and promote a workplace of inclusion that welcomes and supports people of varying backgrounds, viewpoints, experience, talents, and ideas.

By respecting and valuing differences in race, gender, ethnicity, age, disability, culture, linguistic ability, religion, and sexual orientation, opportunities become numerous. Approaches to problem-solving and decision-making are multi-dimensional, leading to success and empowering staff to strive for excellence.

Take a look around you—the diversity of MIT employees represents an infinitive range of possibilities and innovation. MIT's success depends on the diversity of its faculty, staff, and students.

How HR can help you

Human Resources provides:

  • consultations to departments, labs, and centers to ensure diversity, equity, and respect across the Institute.
  • advice on how to connect with the widest possible range of candidates inside of MIT.
  • collaboration with managers and leaders to integrate diversity practices into MIT's employment and workplace practices.
  • the opportunity to participate in diverse job fairs.

Our role is to enable MIT's long-standing commitment to advance staff diversity efforts and to offer assistance toward the realization of affirmative action.

The Institute is committed not only to meeting the requirements of laws, but also to creating an atmosphere of civility, collegiality, mutual respect, and inclusion that stimulates and supports all employees in their work at MIT.
