IAS DIVERSITY STATEMENT
The Institute for Advanced Study believes in the inherent value of diversity and equal opportunity, recognizing that a truly diverse workforce will bring a wider array of perspectives, as well as more innovative and effective solutions, to the organization.
As a community dedicated to intellectual inquiry, we are resolutely committed to the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity refers to the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and more. We strive to maintain the highest standards in making sure that people from all backgrounds perceive that access to the Institute is possible.
Creating a genuinely inclusive environment and ensuring that diverse voices are present and active in all aspects of our organizational life serves to broaden and deepen both the academic experience and the scholarly environment. Ideas, and practices based on those ideas, can be made richer by the process of being conceived and nurtured in a diverse community.
