Stanford Graduate School of Business today announced a school-wide commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, reinforcing its pledge to promote these values and cultivate a culture based on openness, fairness, and respect. This aligns with Stanford’s stated goal of advancing human welfare in a rapidly changing society.

“At Stanford GSB, we believe we will best enact this mission when all members of our community are able to leverage the experiences and ideas of others, embrace different viewpoints, feel that they belong, and know that their contributions are valued,” said Senior Associate Dean Sarah A. Soule, Morgridge Professor of Organizational Behavior, who is responsible for overseeing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

A new section of the website, Diversity at Stanford GSB, highlights relevant activities, programs, research, and stories about this diverse and passionate community. This commitment reflects a university-wide effort known as Stanford’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access in a Learning Community Initiative. Stanford GSB’s data is now reported in the newly launched IDEAL Dashboard.

VPGE supports diversity, inclusion, and equity on campus, from individual student fellowships to grants for student-led initiatives.

VPGE serves the entire graduate student community across all seven schools, including the Graduate School of Business.
