Co-Leads: Lana Scott (Open Learning) lmscott@mit.edu, Danforth Nicholas (VPF) dan4th@mit.edu, & Rachel Ornitz (ICEO) rornitz@mit.edu

Our Mission:

The mission of the LBGTQ Employee Resource Group is to promote an inclusive community for lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and queer employees. The LBGTQ ERG will support MIT’s efforts to diversify staff and faculty, and will work to recruit and retain LBGTQ-identified employees. The LBGTQ ERG will serve as a visible, accessible resource for LBGTQ-identified employees and their allies and will provide LBGTQ-focused networking, educational and social opportunities for the MIT community. The LBGTQ ERG is open to all MIT faculty and staff.
