SES Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In SES, we value diversity in race and ethnicity; gender identity, expression, and sexual orientation; socio-economic and cultural background; religious beliefs; physical abilities; ages; nationalities; and life experiences. Our community is committed to nurturing an environment where people of all backgrounds and identities are welcomed and treated with equity and respect. We are committed to removing institutional barriers and entrenched dynamics that often prevent participation from underrepresented groups in STEM fields, and to take every opportunity to highlight and make visible the existing contributions of a wider diversity of people to our disciplines. In doing so we seek to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in our School. Our efforts include a broad array of initiatives and goals, which are listed in our full Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
