Commitment to Diversity

Amherst is one of the most diverse liberal arts colleges in the country, and, as an institution, we are committed to fighting systemic racism and all forms of discrimination. It is our priority to facilitate equitable access to employment opportunities and to empower and equip all students to create rewarding professional lives with purpose. We in the Loeb Center extend this commitment to the work we do on our students’ behalf with employers and other external partners. Because students who hold marginalized identities may face specific employment and career advancement barriers, we seek to build partnerships with employers who not only value and promote diversity recruitment, but also support their diverse workforces with thoughtful approaches to inclusion, mentorship, and equitable policies.

With so many organizations redoubling their efforts to increase the diversity of their workforce and address racial inequity, we are more excited than ever to share with our students the ever-growing range of recruitment and development opportunities that are available to them. We welcome the chance to work with employers to recruit our incredibly talented students and help build the diverse teams and leadership pipelines that we know are critical to organizational success.
