The Center for Equity, Gender, and Leadership benefits from the experience of our faculty, advisory council, student advisory board, and fellows who are focused on tangible results in the public, private, and academic sectors.

We are led by a team of passionate professors, DEI experts, and advocates. They are the glue that holds the Center together and are key in helping to graduate 1000 Equity Fluent Leaders at BerkeleyHaas every year.
