Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Council supports the broader mission of the Wilson Center to be the nation’s key non-partisan policy forum for tackling global issues through independent research and open dialogue to inform actionable ideas for Congress, the Administration, and the broader international policy community. The Council was established in July 2020 to serve as the primary body responsible for advising the Executive Team on all subjects related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The Council will formulate recommendations for the development or modification of programs, policies, and practices to positively impact diversity, inclusivity, and equity efforts across the Wilson Center in alignment with its overall mission.
