MIT Diversity Summit

From January 27th to January 29th MIT held the Institute Diversity Summit with a focus on “Demystifying Diversity: Expand Your Perspective.”

I was thoroughly happy to attend and engage with so many people committed to the efforts around creating a more embracing and inclusive environment for the student and faculty populations, and the institute’s management and staff.  I attended some very informative and thought provoking workshop sessions on micro-messaging/inequities and how to be a trans-ally.  We were also very fortunate to listen to and share in keynote speaker Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch’s story.
