Northwestern Staff Affinity Groups

Staff are valued members of the Northwestern community. The University actively strives to attract and retain a diverse and exemplary staff workforce. The Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion (OIDI) supports various affinity groups which aim to enhance the personal and professional development of staff, foster a sense of community and help Northwestern create a workplace where everyone feels belonging and thrives.

OIDI actively supports and encourages staff members to engage with the OIDI sanctioned staff affinity groups listed below. To read bios about visit the co-chairs of the OIDI sanctioned affinity groups page.
