Welcome to Johnson’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI)

We’re proud to be the first top business school to have an office focused on supporting the rising generation of women, underrepresented minority (URM), and LGBTQ leaders.

ODI is dedicated to creating forums for positive conversations and collaboration between all members of our student body. Together, we can foster a culture that not only values differences, but also leverages them as source of strength and innovation on campus, and in the professional world.

Join the conversation. Send us an email, join us at an upcoming event, and follow us on Facebook.
