At the 2008 Celebration of the Life and Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President Hockfield announced that, for the first time, MIT would bring together 300 of its academic, administrative, and student leaders at a Diversity Leadership Congress. The Congress, held on November 18, 2008, was an opportunity to support and inspire these leaders in their local efforts. This site provides a webcast of the featured speakers and proceedings of the group discussions that followed. You can find this information, and much more, by clicking on the links to the left.
Building on the ideas and momentum generated at the Congress, MIT is developing a richer website of resources. To participate in this process, please visit Diversity & Inclusion @MIT. There you can learn about some activities since the Congress, join our mailing list, and suggest links for the future site.
