The Committee for the Promotion of Diversity and Inclusion's mission is to develop, coordinate and support events, programs, resources, and communications that create an inclusive and equitable environment in which MIT Libraries staff are valued and empowered to effect positive change by actively pursuing a social justice agenda within the Libraries and the communities we serve.
