Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Strengthen your cultural competencies, boost inclusivity on campus, interrogate structures of power, and advance social justice through interdisciplinary programming. Opportunities for academic research, student leadership training, living-learning communities, workshops, and critical conversations compose a well-rounded education that foregrounds equity and inclusivity in the context of women’s leadership
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program trains 25-45 ambassadors each year to lead conversations with other students on topics such as: Allyship, LGBTQ+ Justice, Ableism, Racism, and Mental Health.
The Global Village is a set of opportunities that prioritize the intersection of community outreach, experiential learning, and global initiatives.
The Dean's Diversity Board is composed of Douglass students who meet monthly in a mutual exchange of ideas and feedback in diversity, equity, and inclusion matters with the Dean.
Women's Day at Douglass is an annual event that aims to commemorate and honor the resilience, strength, and work of women globally. Speakers, service-learning, self-care activities, and more bring the Douglass community together to celebrate and learn.
“My role as a DEI Ambassador has been eye opening and comforting. I didn't think it would be so necessary to be in a room with empowered women who are willing to engage in difficult conversations. It's refreshing to see and interact with people who are looking to spread understanding, love, and justice.” - Yenny Tavarez
