Institute Diversity Summit 2013

Cambridge, MA, 02139

Institute Diversity Summit

 January 30, 2013, 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
 Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Co-sponsored by the Committee on Race & Diversity, the Council on
Staff Diversity & Inclusion, and the President's Office

What do you think of when you hear the word “meritocracy?” Come join us for this year’s Institute Diversity Summit 2013 on Wednesday, January 30, 2013, to learn and discuss this year’s theme, “Meritocracy and Inclusion at MIT: Principles or Practices?”

The Summit -- a collaboration among faculty, students, and staff -- will be an opportunity to hear perspectives from various members of the MIT community, as well as leaders beyond MIT. We hope you can come to one or all of the sessions (including a session post-Summit) and participate in the conversation.

We believe this year’s Summit will be an inspiring follow-up to last year’s theme of diversity and excellence and look forward to seeing many students, faculty and staff in attendance.

Come add your voice!
