About us

Mission

The ITLC Diversity & Inclusion Action Team is a group of Indiana University IT staff members who volunteer our time to create positive change where we work. Our mission is to foster a welcoming and accepting professional environment that not only embraces but also encourages the inclusion of diverse backgrounds, cultures, and ideas. Through initiatives and outreach, we actively work to create a sustainable culture of diversity and inclusion for technology professionals on all IU campuses.

D&I education

We will host workshops, focus groups, and other learning opportunities to educate and promote discussion on topics that impact today’s workplace, such as unconscious bias, generational and cultural differences, and the employment of persons with disabilities. Through a better understanding of diversity and inclusion, we can work towards a pervasively diverse and inclusive work culture.

Change doesn't happen overnight

We strive to ensure employees are engaged and recognized for their diverse contributions to the organization’s success.

But change takes time.

We encourage you to get involved with the D&I initiative, so we can build a diverse and inclusive work culture for the continued betterment of the organization and its employees.
