Diversity & Inclusion

The Diversity, Inclusion, Values and Equity Committee

Michener’s Diversity, Inclusion, Values and Equity Committee (DIVE) strives to create a safe, inclusive, accessible and welcoming space at Michener.

The Committee’s goal is to support and empower people to bring their full selves to the workplace every day. The Committee is led by staff, but our activities and messages are intended to give a voice to all marginalized employees and students on campus. We welcome everyone regardless of race, ethnic group, socioeconomic status, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, language, religion or age.
