Valuing Diversity

Employees looking at a report outdoors.

Diversity encompasses all those differences that make us unique, including but not limited to, demographics, cultural, belief, language, cognitive skills, perspectives and physical abilities. It offers a collection of talents that allow us to tackle some of the country's more complex problems. Therefore we're proud that our workforce is diverse in many dimensions.

We are committed to fostering an environment that embraces mutual respect, cooperation, and productive relationships among the members of our diverse workforce. This includes our commitment to a positive professional work environment and to fair employment practices for our entire workforce.

We're also committed to making our workplace accessible. This means making every reasonable effort to ensure that people with a variety of circumstances—including visual, auditory, cognitive, and ambulatory disabilities, and susceptibility to seizures—can work effectively and productively at MITRE.

To make this happen, we promote candid collaboration, excellence, fairness, honesty, impartiality, independence, professional integrity, promise-keeping, respect for the individual, and service in the public interest in all we do. Our approach to inclusion helps MITRE employees realize their fullest potential.

MITRE's Commission on Inclusion and Diversity is an advisory council that supports the strategic vision of inclusion and diversity across the organization. MITRE also encourages participation in its Employee Councils, which collaborate, advocate, and support MITRE on topics related to diversity, inclusion, talent acquisition, and STEM. The Councils offer MITRE diverse thinking around issues and advocacy to support and embrace a more inclusive culture. They include:

  • Accessibility Council: Brings awareness and access to advocates and employees with disabilities
  • Multi-Cultural Employee Resource Group: Brings together employees from differing cultures
  • Multi-Gen Council: Provides a platform for multiple generations
  • Pride Council: Brings together members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies
  • Veteran Council: Connects veterans and advocates
  • Women's Council: Provides a pathway to bring together women and advocates
  • STEM Council: A centralized STEM/STEAM resource for MITRE

Many national organizations and publications have honored us for creating an inclusive and diverse workforce where people don't just have jobs—they build careers. (See Building Partnerships and Diversity, One Engineering Conference at a Time.) We were recently recognized by STEM Workforce Diversity Magazine and Woman Engineer Magazine. We're also proud to be named to the HBCU (historically black college and university) Top Supporters List for 2019.

MITRE has a fundamental commitment to the achievement of excellence and inclusion for all of our valued employees across the globe and strongly encourage candidates to apply who will enrich MITRE’s culturally dynamic environment. We invite you to add your own distinct contribution to the mix.
