At the Media Lab, our research goals, community, and interdisciplinary methods of practice and scholarship aim to be inclusive and reflect the complexity of our world. We envision a community where we draw upon the strengths of our diversity to realize the full potential of our research, teaching, learning, innovation, and service for societal impact and broad, meaningful reach around the globe.
We affirm our commitment to a positive future where we foster an inclusive, safe, and supportive environment, equipping all community members with the opportunities to thrive. We recognize that we are a work in progress and commit to holding ourselves, the Media Lab community, accountable to these values through our actions moving forward.

Diversity and Leadership Committee
To achieve our DEI aspirations, the Diversity and Leadership Committee works with the DEI Working Group to strategize, prioritize, and evaluate DEI programs and initiatives for the Media Lab. Each member of the Committee represents our constituencies: the students, faculty, and staff at the Media Lab.
DEI Working Group
Carrying on the significant work of not just the Culture Working Group but also that of the Funding, Governance, Research and Student-Advisor groups, the DEI Working Group has been charged with continuing these efforts in a focused, strategic, and inclusive manner.
