By partnering with institutional leadership and other Broad entities, our goal is to cultivate a more-welcoming, inclusive, and equitable environment, free of harassment and discrimination, that will attract and retain Broadies, particularly from racially and ethnically marginalized groups. We aim to recognize and affirm the multiple identities that individuals hold by utilizing an intersectional perspective in this work.

We further aim to build community and promote ethnically diverse perspectives in all our endeavors. 

There are many ways to get involved with Shades@Broad.
