Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Allyship (IDEA) Transformation at George Mason University

Since becoming President of Mason, Dr. Gregory Washington has strengthened its commitment to eradicate practices and traditions of racial bias at the University. To lead the effort toward furthering Mason’s commitment, Dr. Sharnnia Artis joined the university in Fall 2021 as the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer. Dr. Artis recently engaged with Attain Partners to evaluate and assess the current DEI landscape across the University as Mason strategically looks toward the future.

Leveraging our proprietary Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Allyship (IDEA) Performance Maturity Framework, Attain Partners conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of the University’s current DEI programming, initiatives, and processes as well as provided strategic recommendations to optimize the University’s efforts towards accomplishing long-term DEI goals.
