Taking a Stand Against Racism
Commitment to Change
As we state in this pledge, we, the leadership of the school, are united in our commitment to change. We know we have a lot of work to do, and will continue to update this page as we articulate the specific actions and initiatives required to achieve these goals.
In 2019, we took a hard look at our performance in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and articulated broad goals for the school in order to hold ourselves accountable.
Today, these broadly defined goals continue to be our focus: increase the diversity of our community; create an inclusive and welcoming campus community, and an inclusive classroom and learning experience; empower and support communities underrepresented in our efforts to date, with a specific focus on our Black community; support new research efforts; extend our impact beyond the school by harnessing the power of existing networks — within Stanford GSB and Stanford University, across our students and alumni, and within society.
