MA in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Leadership

To be an effective leader in anti-racist and anti-bias efforts, you must understand the complex sociological, economic, and historical contexts that have led to bias, discrimination, and marginalization. Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Leadership (DEIJ-L) master's program is designed to give the foundation and tools for this work.

Upon completion of the DEIJ-L master's program, you will be prepared to implement changes to enhance diversity, inclusion, and equity, design and evaluate programs to enact change, and lead organizations through sustainable transformation. You will develop a deep understanding of foundational and scholarly theories (e.g., critical race theory) while you acquire the practical tools (e.g., program evaluation) to implement institutional changes. 

This program is truly interdisciplinary. Our students bring a variety of backgrounds and fields to facilitate our examination of these challenging issues. 

Flexible format and tracks

  • This master’s program is available in two formats: as a residential program, with both in-person and virtual course requirements, or as a fully online program
  • Either format can be taken full-time or part-time*. Academic requirements for both part-time and full-time study are the same
  • Courses are available in fall, spring, and summer
  • Both part-time and full-time master's students are eligible for tuition scholarships
  • Conveniently located just a few miles from downtown Boston, our Medford/Somerville campus is easily accessible via public transportation and is also parking friendly

*If you are unsure if you are eligible for part-time study due to an international visa, please email our International Center.

Programs Requirements and Timelines

  • The master's program consists of 10 courses, including the year-long core seminar and the 2-semester final project.
  • Full-time students typically complete the program in 2-3 years.
  • Part-time students typically take one to two courses per semester in the evening, in-person or online, and can complete the program in as few as 2 years with summer coursework.
  • Final project courses are not offered during the summer. 

Course Requirements

The master's curriculum is built around four essential focus areas, also called "Knowledge Competencies" (KCs). Each explores core theoretical ideas in combination with organizational leadership and measurement tools.

Visit this page for the full list of courses offered by our program. Master's students have the opportunity to petition for alternative courses offered outside of the DEIJ-L program. 

The DEIJ-L Master's Curriculum and Knowledge Competencies

  • Core Seminar
  • KC1A: Social & Historical Context 
  • KC1B: Cultural Sensitivity & Responsivity 
  • KC2A: Organizational Behavior & Change 
  • KC2B: Interpersonal Relations/Conflict Resolution 
  • KC3A: Assessment, Evaluation & Policy 
  • KC3B: Data Analytics

  • Final Project - Capstone  - Students engage in a final project course in the semester prior to completing their final project. This course guides our students as they identify their committee, write their proposals, and receive IRB approval. Students are encouraged to begin thinking about their final project by end of their first year in the program. The capstone project is a scholarly project consisting of original research in action in the student's area of focus that demonstrates thoughtful application of theories. 

*Current students may elect to complete the final project as a thesis. New students are encouraged to pursue their final project as a capstone.

This study addresses the inadequacy of the career and diversity literatures in explaining the dynamics of job allocations in a culturally diverse organizational context. In order to better understand this topic, we conducted a qualitative study involving personal interviews with 50 Emiratis and international employees who worked in managerial positions in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The purpose of the study was to explore the unique challenges associated with managing a culturally diverse workforce and explore the role of culture in allocating jobs among employees with diverse cultural backgrounds. Despite the perceived value of having a culturally diverse workforce, our findings indicate a lack of effective diversity management strategies for dealing with challenges and issues associated with a high level of cultural diversity in the participating organizations. This study provides insights into the impact of cultural/nationality-based stereotypes on job allocations as well as on organizational outcomes. Based on the findings, we discussed implications for research and practice and as well as for policy makers.

Diversity management has been extensively studied in domestic settings. However, domestic diversity management research is inadequate for understanding diversity management concerns of global firms at the level of their strategic decision making and cross-national coordination activities. The aim of this paper is to examine Japanese global firms in the automotive industry with a view to reveal their reasons for adoption, diffusion and implementation of global diversity management activities. The field research assumes a multi-party, multi-layered approach, incorporating interviews with decision leaders in key institutional actors, including diversity managers, trade union and employers’ association representatives and, subject specialist scholars. The research also involves documentary analysis of policy documents and corporate data. The paper provides a) a literature review on diversity management that identifies its key tenets and global and domestic versions, b) a conceptual framework of influences which shape the diversity management approach that a firm may take, c) an elaboration of the research methods and techniques and d) a case study of global diversity management in the Japanese automobile industry from a multi-stakeholder perspective. Research findings reveal that despite their global outlook, the automotive companies still retain multinational rather than global approaches to diversity management. The paper explains why this may be the case and proposes some remedies for overcoming current tensions in effective implementation of global diversity management activities.

What is workforce diversity? What are the benefits of workforce diversity in organisations, what management can do to enhance work force diversity in organisations? What are the disadvantages of workforce diversity? .This questions would be main purpose of this article.

In response to demographic change organizations in Germany and Japan have recently begun to adapt their human resource management practices to embrace employees with diverse backgrounds: e.g. females, foreigners, or older workers (aged fifty and older). Based on a survey of 209 organizations we compare the current situation of diversity management practices in the two countries. Our findings indicate that, due to institutional differences, the scope and focus of diversity management varies significantly. Japanese diversity management focuses primarily on gender, whereas German organizations adopt a broader approach. While Japanese organizations consider communication and HR initiatives more important, German organizations assign a higher importance to practices integrating diversity in everyday work.

Corporate culture is like a tree which has diversified his business in different perspectives. In that context to managing the workplace diversity becomes one of the most important issues to ensuring the organizational effectiveness. Diversity Management is an important tool for fostering creativity and innovation through managing diverse workforce. Managing diversity is simply managing the individual in workplace. Diversity transforms the homogenous to heterogeneous workforce. In the recent years, employing heterogeneous workforces is important for competitive organization but to manage the diversified workforce is major challenge for management. This paper provides an overview of issues and challenges occur in the managing diversity. It also aims to investigate the gaps between theories and practices in the organization. This study emphasizes that it is need to develop a model and framework in the Indian context to manage the diversity effectively.
