Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At the University of California, Berkeley, the Haas School of Business, and Berkeley Executive Education, we are committed to creating a community that fosters equity of experience and opportunity, and ensure that participants, faculty, and staff of all backgrounds feel safe, welcome, and included. Our culture of openness, freedom, and belonging makes it a special place for participants, faculty, and staff.

The University of California, Berkeley, is one of the world's leading institutions of higher education, distinguished by its combination of internationally recognized academic and research excellence; the transformative opportunity it provides to a large and diverse student body; its public mission and commitment to equity and social justice; and its roots in the California experience, animated by such values as innovation, questioning the status quo, and respect for the environment and nature. Since its founding in 1868, Berkeley has fueled a perpetual renaissance, generating unparalleled intellectual, economic, and social value in California, the United States, and the world.

We seek to engage with equity-minded individuals who demonstrate a sensitivity to and understanding of the diverse academic, socioeconomic, cultural, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, and ethnic backgrounds present in our community. When you join a Berkeley Executive Education program, you can expect to be part of an inclusive, innovative, and equity-focused community that approaches education as a matter of social justice that requires broad collaboration among faculty, staff, participants, and community partners. In deciding whether to apply to or attend a Berkeley Executive Education program, you are strongly encouraged to consider whether your values align with Berkeley’s Guiding Values and Principles and Principles of Community.

We hope to welcome you into the UC Berkeley community to further develop our inclusive ecosystem.
