Booth Diversity and Inclusion

The mission of Booth Diversity and Inclusion is to cultivate an inclusive Chicago Booth community as well as to enhance the personal growth of our students. We are committed to fostering a supportive, positive environment by enhancing awareness and understanding of diverse perspectives, identities, and experiences in order to promote engagement and learning across differences. Our goal is to promote a community that welcomes and embraces people from all ethnicities, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, and religious beliefs.

Since 1985, Chicago Booth has had staff dedicated to the support of underrepresented student populations. Booth Diversity & Inclusion leads our efforts, serving as a liaison between students, Chicago Booth offices, and corporate partners to provide unique programming that complements both the educational and recruiting experiences for underrepresented students including African American, Hispanic American, Native American, female, and LGBTQ students.
