The BBE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee works with the Division's DEI Representatives to develop new initiatives, steward ongoing programs, coordinate efforts across the Division, and interface with Institute level activities that enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion. The BBE Division believes that diversity fosters increased creativity and innovation and wants to create an environment in which all members can thrive, regardless of their backgrounds. We understand that diversity encompasses many aspects, including race, ethnicity, religion, origins, gender, sexuality, age, socioeconomics, and disability, and we believe that diversity fosters increased creativity and innovation. The BBE Division wishes to promote an atmosphere that is as free from bias as possible. If you wish to report an incident of bias of any kind, the Caltech Equity and Title IX Office has reporting information and a reporting form online. In addition, you can send an anonymous report to the BBE DEI committee or just the BBE DEI committee chairs. See anonymous form here.
