Data Science Masters

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Definitions

The University of Washington Master’s in Data Science (MSDS) program is dedicated to fostering a culture of respect and honor for human dignity to our students, staff, faculty, and members of the University of Washington, data science, and global community at large. Here are some definitions of what we mean by Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at UW MSDS:

Diversity: The representation of different and unique identities, characteristics, experiences, and perspectives.

Equity: Giving everyone what they need to succeed by increasing access, resources, and opportunities for all; especially for those who are underrepresented and have been historically disadvantaged.

Inclusion: A welcoming culture in which differences are celebrated and everyone is valued, respected, and able to reach their full potential.
