Alumni Diversity Convocation Set for April

At a Diversity Leadership Congress on campus in November, 300 academic, administrative, and student leaders discussed concrete decisions that could accelerate MIT’s efforts to promote diversity and inclusion. In a parallel effort, the MIT Alumni Association is sponsoring a Diversity Convocation on campus April 3-4–and all alumni are invited.

“The Diversity Convocation will cele­brate the MIT community and explore ways that we can foster a strong, vibrant, and increasingly inclusive community,” says MIT Alumni Association president Toni Schuman ‘58. “The convocation will include opportunities for affinity group meetings, student and alumni interaction, and discussions of current MIT diversity initiatives.”

Convocation events include the 30th-anniversary celebration of Black Alumni of MIT (BAMIT), an affinity group devoted to supporting alumni and students of African descent and local black communities. BAMIT is one of eight affinity groups that provide a connection to alumni with similar interests or cultures.

Join an Affinity Group that Interests You

Affinity groups–organized by ethnicity, gender, or interest–invite alumni to network personally and professionally and to support current students. Thousands of alumni have participated in affinity group events, and all are welcome to join an existing group or attend events.
