Announcing our new DEI Specialist
November 15, 2021
We are happy to announce our community’s new DEI Specialist: Christelle Myriam Hayles, who will be joining us in January 2022. A special thanks to the search committee members, including the student search sub-committee, and the DMSE DEI Collaborative for all their commitment, insight, and hard work during this process.
Christelle comes to us from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. At WPI, she is the Associate Director of Diversity & Inclusion Excellence and brings 9+ years of progressive DEI experience and knowledge to our BE, ChemE, and DMSE communities. She is skilled in event coordination, program management, daily operations oversight, process analysis/improvement, student mentoring, training, administration, problem-solving, promoting cultural dialogue, communication, and crisis assessment/resolution. Christelle has a B.A. in philosophy from Colgate University.
We are very excited to have Christelle join us in our effort toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community for all of our members. We look forward to working with her in the coming year to foster an environment that embraces all identities, promotes diverse critical knowledge, and ensures that all belong and can thrive. We plan to have a welcome event for Christelle in January – we will send out an announcement closer to the date.
