Matthew Slaughter, the Paul Danos Dean of the Tuck School of Business, on Aug. 20 announced a new leadership role and appointment within the deans' office: Effective Sept. 1, Dia Draper will become the first assistant dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Tuck School.

Draper's new role will build on the strengths of the Tuck community, and that will advance the pursuit of its mission by elevating a commitment to driving organizational change, Slaughter said.

Reporting to Slaughter, Draper will assess Tuck's approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion; she will work with teams across the school to develop recommendations in support of the school's desire to improve in these areas of strategic importance—areas that include race, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity, nationality, and socioeconomic status. She will also oversee and direct Tuck's forthcoming annual DEI report, facilitating the setting of goals and the benchmarking of progress.
