Diversity & Inclusion

A diverse workforce and inclusive environment increases productivity, creates new ideas, performs on a higher level, and enhances Yale’s ability to continue to excel in an increasingly complex, competitive and diverse world.

Diversity is the broad range of attributes, experiences, and characteristics (race, gender, cultural heritage, sexual orientation, physical/mental ability, age, national origin, etc.) that makes us uniquely who we are. At Yale, inclusion means creating a work environment where each person has the opportunity to participate fully to achieve the mission of the University and is valued for their distinctive skills and capabilities.

A range of information, consultation, education, and resources are available to the Yale community on issues related to workforce diversity and inclusion. Policies, procedures, forms and guides are also on hand.
