Graduate School launches inclusive leadership program supporting Princeton’s anti-racism efforts

Tuesday, Mar 16, 2021

Thirty-three Princeton graduate students co-created and completed the Graduate School’s inaugural Inclusive Leadership Learning Cohort (ILLC) in fall 2020. The GradFUTURES Professional Development and Access, Diversity and Inclusion teams at the Graduate School led this new initiative, partnering with graduate students to shape the program as a platform for anti-racism efforts.

The cohort’s focus on inclusive leadership is part of the University’s campus-wide campaign to confront America’s record of structural inequality and racism as well as Princeton’s place in that history. Graduate student participants in the inaugural cohort joined Princeton’s broader efforts to redress discrimination and marginalization. The cohort centers on the understanding that local action and individual commitment are paramount for achieving significant and sustainable change.
