We Bring Together Diversity and Inclusion and Student Consulting

Members of DISC are trained in best practices for initiatives aimed to encourage excellence in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our unique process exposes them to ideas relevant to the 21st century workplace alongside pre-professional skills. Students work in teams to research, analyze, and formulate D&I initiatives.

DISC offers clients access to premier D&I information and analysis. Clients are able to work with promising Penn students to gain student insight on D&I priorities and access to an exceptional talent pool.
