Celebrating Pride Month 2023!

Wentworth Institute of Technology is proud to celebrate Pride Month! This month, our community is delighted to recognize the contributions of LGBTQ+ individuals who make our community a vibrant and inclusive place. We are also pleased to honor the rich history and culture of the LGBTQ+ community and the important role they have played in shaping our society's past and present.

This month, we are honored to celebrate the success and achievements of our LGBTQ+ identifying students, faculty, and staff. We are pleased to cultivate a community that admires our progress and continues to work thoughtfully to make Wentworth an inclusive and enriching environment for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities to exchange ideas, learn, and grow.

Diversity, equity and inclusion affects all people, and everyone should be invested in understanding why. We are all affected because at the end of the day, we are at our best when every member of our community can live as their best selves. The very heart of diversity, equity and inclusion is basic respect and a sense of belonging.

Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive Excellence means actively and intentionally cultivating a diverse and culturally competent institution where each member has the opportunity and support to reach their full potential and make contributions to our campus community and beyond. Inclusive Excellence is at the center of Wentworth's new strategic plan to which everyone is accountable.

Industry Corps

Industry Corps (INCO), part of Wentworth’s Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), aims to deliver education-to-career pathways driven by the needs of the local economy for all levels of learners. Built with the “community school” model serving as inspiration, participants have the opportunity to earn stacked credentials that will build their portfolio of skills. A pathway in Construction will serve as INCO's first pathway.

WIT Diversity Timeline

The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Schumann Library & Learning Commons has partnered to capture significant moments in Wentworth's history that have contributed to campus life related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In order to grow as an inclusive community, we must get to know our history, celebrate our present, and understand what we need to do to strengthen our future.
