About Us

Who We Are

The REDI task force was created in 2020 after MIP students demanded a robust response to racial injustice from FSI. As a brand-new initiative, we are focused on increasing racial equity, diversity, and inclusion at FSI through sustained action in hiring, research, policy initiatives, curriculum, and more. Our activities include data and resource collection, event programming, diversity training, implementing structural change, and more.

REDI Task Force Members

REDI Task Force members comprise FSI students, scholars, staff, and faculty.
