J. Brice Bible, vice president and chief information officer, has joined nearly 400 senior higher education IT leaders from across the U.S. in pledging to promote diversity, equity and inclusion, both locally and across higher education.
By signing the CIO Commitment Statement, a national campaign led by Educause, a nonprofit association whose mission is to advance higher education through the use of information technology, the CIOs agree to endorse a common set of actions that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) locally and in the field. Those actions include:
“As CIOs, we play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of technology professionals and leaders,” the statement says. “We believe that diverse and inclusive environments will foster more effective and creative teams of IT professionals.”
