  • Diversity Officer: Thato Mokhothu

    So far I am enjoying the role, although, COVID-19 has ruined other plans that the diversity officer and myself had from the beginning. It’s nice to know that what I am doing matters now and also for the next groups of people that will walk through OIST. It doesn’t matter to me that things take time, it matters to me that our ideas are received, and appropriate plans are made in response.

  • Gender Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Representative: Isabel Anai Echeverria Oviedo

    No one would argue that OIST is a very diverse place, because we have many different people from very different backgrounds. This is one of the reasons why I decided to accept my position as one of the student representatives of the Gender, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) Committee. Having so much diversity is not very common in other places and working directly on diversity on a place like this is a very enriching experience.
