To achieve our DEI aspirations, the Diversity and Leadership Committee and the DEI Working Group strategize, prioritize, and evaluate diversity, equity, and inclusion programs and initiatives for the Media Lab. Each member of the Committee represents our constituencies: the students, faculty, and staff at the Media Lab. 

Carrying on the significant work of not just the Culture Working Group but also that of the Funding, Governance, Research, and Student-Advisor groups, the DEI Working Group has been charged with continuing these efforts in a focused, strategic, and inclusive manner. 

2022 priorities of the Working Group:

  • co-design of shared values statement
  • co-design of Code of Conduct
  • improve onboarding 
  • continue efforts on our DEI graduate student programming
