Members of the LSI's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategic planning committee include faculty, students, postdocs, research staff and administrative staff.

Highlights from DEI 1.0

The five-year implementation of U-M’s DEI 1.0 strategic initiative resulted in many new policies, practices, activities and other efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion at the LSI. In this document, we highlight these efforts across time to help the LSI community understand what work has been done and to help our forward trajectory in DEI 2.0. Many of the LSI’s efforts toward building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment were catalyzed by the individuals and groups within the LSI that were already doing this important work, and we look forward to partnering with members of the LSI community to continue and build on our collective efforts in ways that foster diversity, equity and inclusion at the LSI.
