At Berkeley-Haas, we like to think about diversity from the inside out. That means going beyond what is visible to what makes each of us distinct. Diversity includes much more than demographics and statistics; it is about the different life and work experiences we bring to our community. It encompasses the lively discussions in classrooms fueled by our individual intellectual perspectives. It is apparent in the paths our students and alumni take in their personal and professional lives.
The quest for excellence and inclusion guides us in all that we do, supported by our shared commitment to our Defining Principles:
We lead by championing bold ideas, taking intelligent risks, and accepting sensible failures. This means speaking our minds even when it challenges convention. We thrive at the world’s epicenter of innovation.
We make decisions based on evidence and analysis, giving us the confidence to act without arrogance. We lead through trust and collaboration.
We are a community designed for curiosity and lifelong pursuit of personal and intellectual growth. This is not a place for those who feel they have learned all they need to learn.
We shape our world by leading ethically and responsibly. As stewards of our enterprises, we take the longer view in our decisions and actions. This often means putting larger interests above our own.
