Dear GW Business Community,
In this, my final monthly DEI update as interim chief diversity officer, I would like to share some personal reflections on where we stand and where we have left to go.
Last month, I mentioned some of the positive reports we’ve received regarding diversity at the school of business. For example, having a full-time M.B.A. program with majority women enrollment for the past four years, and achieving gender parity across graduate and undergraduate programs.
Of course, in addition to admitting a diverse student body, staff, and faculty, we must also realize the benefits of such diversity. Instilling trust, maintaining civility despite our differences and strengthening a sense of inclusion and belonging for all will continue to take our collective efforts. Thankfully, because of our diverse community, there are daily opportunities for each of us to do this. Let's celebrate our diversity but also look ahead to do more so that we may all succeed together.
