The Wharton Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Group (WEDIG) is a division-sponsored student group comprised of Wharton undergraduates that aims to provide a more inclusive Wharton community where students of all backgrounds feel that Wharton is a safe, comfortable, and equitable space through initiatives and programs.
WEDIG is going to focus on bridging the gap in satisfaction for groups that have been historically less satisfied, including underrepresented minorities. We want to make Wharton a place where everyone can feel they belong, no matter their identity: race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or socio-economic background.
To accomplish these goals, we run initiatives focused on advisory as related to Wharton Undergraduates' learning experience and student life, as well as programming focused on community-building. Through these initiatives, we have been able to interface with faculty and administration on crucial issues including club recruiting and DEI implementation in the classroom, as well as generate genuine and insightful conversation through programming events with over 250+ attendees.
If you are passionate and committed to initiatives to advance inclusion in your time at Wharton, this is the organization for you!
