ODIB works to advance the Kennedy School as a place where every member of our community will thrive. Cultivating and supporting an anti-racist community is integral to achieving this goal. The office regularly collaborates with HKS departments and centers and with others across Harvard on projects geared towards creating an anti-racist culture, such as Community Conversations and the Black, Indigenous, People of Color and Allies Student Pre-Orientation. The department is led by Dr. Robbin Chapman, HKS's Associate Dean for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging. The team includes Program Manager Harrison Nekoroski and Faculty Assistant Charles Porter.
