Belonging at ORA

“Creating connection, community, and a strong DEIB foundation at the Office of Research Administration (ORA).”

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) at Yale University is dedicated to welcoming, valuing, and supporting everyone’s unique contributions, as well as encouraging a diverse representation. We are actively committed to cultivating an environment for learning, working, and being; where diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and mutual respect thrive. ORA strives to be a safe and supportive environment that celebrates, empowers, and openly acknowledges the diversity of our staff, faculty, students, and visitors.

We resist all forms of discrimination and prejudice. This DEIB committee is a collaboration and a call to action to bond together in empathy and allyship; aspiring to advance a culture of inclusion through intentional, positive, and conscious efforts.

ORA recognizes that diversity is intersectional and through actively listening to each other’s voices, and we engage the broad backgrounds and talents that diversify the research administration workforce.
