The mission of the MIT Sloan School of Management is to develop principled, innovative leaders who improve the world and to generate ideas that advance management practice.

The MIT Sloan School of Management (MIT Sloan), among the nation’s most prestigious and innovative business schools, seeks a visionary change agent, intellectual leader, and effective administrator to serve as its inaugural Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (Director). This is an exciting opportunity to join a remarkable school universally recognized for the exceptional quality of its academic programs and promotion of taking ideas to impact and balancing academic and practical perspectives among faculty, students, and alumni.

Reporting directly to the Associate Deans for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Director will develop inclusive practices and policies, identify and develop new DEI programs for the MIT Sloan community, and partner with MIT Sloan departments to implement and evaluate DEI action plans. This individual will work in close collaboration with Sloan’s Associate Deans for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, serve as a thought leader with in-depth knowledge of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and help shape and implement MIT Sloan’s vision of a respectful, inclusive community that embraces diversity. This is a rare opportunity for an accomplished and collaborative individual to engage MIT faculty, staff, students, and alumni to build a welcoming and inclusive learning and working culture. The Director will act as a key advisor and strategic partner and will collaborate closely with members of MIT Sloan’s leadership to advance its strategic goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

MIT Sloan is dedicated to being the world’s most innovative and engaged management school – where vital knowledge is created, principled leaders are educated, and a culture of collaboration translates powerful ideas into global solutions. To work, study, or teach at MIT Sloan is to be immersed in an invigorating experience of international collaboration. The school fosters a cooperative and adventurous learning community that consists of approximately 1,300 graduate and undergraduate students from over 60 countries as well as over 24,000 alumni residing around the world, who are responsible for the creation of more than 650 companies. MIT Sloan offers undergraduate, master's, PhD, executive education, and non-degree programs together with special seminars, conferences, and programs for alumni. MIT Sloan faculty are leaders in their fields and work closely with their counterparts in corporations and governments around the world to develop the knowledge, insight, tools, and techniques that shape the future of management.

The Director will be expected to strengthen the diverse and inclusive culture within the MIT Sloan community by working with internal and external stakeholders. The Director will work with MIT Sloan and the greater MIT community to implement best practices that advance the inclusion of MIT Sloan students, staff, and faculty of all races, genders, disabilities, sexualities, nationalities, social classes, and religious backgrounds. In concert with the Dean's Office, Student Life, Career Development Office, the Office of Admissions, Human Resources, Faculty, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee (including faculty, staff, student, and alumni subcommittees), the Director will play a key role in implementing the recommendations made by the MIT Sloan Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion, establish the DEI Strategic Plan and work with the MIT Sloan administration to identify the resources needed to advance its diversity goals and objectives.
