OID's initiatives are deliberate efforts of co-curricular education, strategic workshops, and training aimed at promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within the Yale School of Management community and organization.


OID's cultural immersions involve deeply engaging with and experiencing different cultures through sound, taste, touch, and thought to foster understanding, empathy, and inclusivity in the Yale School of Management community.


OID's action within the Yale School of Management community involves implementing proactive measures such as CARE, restorative practices, policy, and effective communication, all aimed at nurturing diversity, equity, inclusion, and a sense of belonging among students, faculty, and staff.

"We seek to achieve inclusion and diversity in our community as an inseparable aspect of our mission of educating leaders for business and society - leaders who, working in all sectors and across all geographies, can improve the lives of those around them. We will be unrelenting in our efforts to weave this perspective into all our programs."
