The Haas School of Business has an unequivocal commitment to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion as defined by the University of California Office of the President and UC Berkeley’s Office of Equity & Inclusion.

We believe that diversity includes supporting and respecting the personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. These differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, political diversity, socioeconomic status, and geographic region, and more.

The Haas School is committed to recruiting the most diverse students, faculty and staff which enhances our mission, community, and academic excellence.  We seek to provide an inclusive environment where everyone is treated fairly and has equal access to opportunities, a commitment that lies at the heart of Berkeley’s mission as a public university.

Diversity of cultures and perspectives are the hallmarks of Berkeley Haas.

Bringing together individuals of different backgrounds, mindsets, and experiences from around the world fosters new and creative thinking. You get there when you have people who bring their unique voices to the table and come at challenges from many angles and perspectives—and when you are open to those different ways of thinking.

Welcoming these different ways of thinking is the heart of inclusion.

At Berkeley Haas, we see our differences as a great source of strength, as a source of innovative ideas and creative accomplishment, and as an opportunity for growth.

Fostering Diversity in Business

With this focus, we frame and inform our teaching and student learning experiences to equip our students to lead in a diverse world. This quest is supported by our shared commitment to our four Defining Leadership Principles: Question the Status QuoConfidence Without AttitudeStudents Always, and Beyond Yourself.

We at Haas share the University of California, Berkeley’s commitment to achieving a diverse and inclusive student body, faculty, and staff.  We are proud of the many identities and rich variety of experiences, ideas, and skills our community brings to our courses, programs, and research.
