Brandeis International Business School

Anti-Racism Plan

Dec. 2, 2021

Brandeis International Business School believes that engaging diversity, equity and inclusion is integral to success in academics, business and society. Brandeis University was founded on these principles and they continue to guide our mission. We acknowledge, value and are committed to making these principles come to life for all members of the International Business School community.

This anti-racism plan was conceived by Brandeis International Business School's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, in response to the tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. The actions below have now been circulated within our community and amended with input from students, faculty and staff. (Our DEI committee was formed initially by our staff members partly in response to the discriminatory, inequitable and disturbing practices experienced by students on the Brandeis University men's basketball team. One of the original purposes of the committee was to ensure that staff and faculty at the International Business School treat all students fairly and with respect. The committee has met regularly since its formation and attracts participation from both staff and faculty.)

Antiracism in the context of this plan will be defined as actively opposing racism in our community through proactive actions and policies to combat institutional and societal racism.

What actions can we take as a school?
