MITRE's world-class workforce represents a wide range of cultures, skills, backgrounds, cognitive styles, and other aspects of diversity. MITRE works to create an inclusive culture that doesn't just accommodate but leverages that diversity to create better solutions for our sponsors and a stronger future for the company.


MITRE's Business Case for Diversity


A fully diverse and inclusive organization provides MITRE with a competitive advantage by building employee trust, increasing morale and productivity, and enhancing our ability to attract and retain a high-quality staff. Specifically, diversity and inclusion allow numerous benefits:


  • Customers and sponsors want and expect to see people with a broad range of perspectives.
  • Job applicants and staff want to see open career paths, supported by executive management.
  • Diversity builds the bench by creating a stronger and deeper employee pipeline.
  • Diversity helps to withstand predicted future labor shortages with "best in class" recruitment and retention results.
  • Leveraging all sectors of the workforce leads to the best solutions for our customers.
  • MITRE's Definition of Diversity


At MITRE, we understand that a diverse workforce allows us to be at our best as we work with our customers around the world. Workforce differences that we celebrate include those based on:

  • Abilities
  • Age
  • Culture
  • Education
  • Experience
  • Family Status
  • Gender
  • Job Function
  • Learning Styles
  • Length of Service
  • National Origin
  • Race and Ethnicity
  • Religion
  • Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
  • Socioeconomic Status
  • Work Styles


MITRE's effectiveness at using the talents of people with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives is a key aspect of our mission to serve the public interest.


MITRE's Definition of Inclusion


Inclusion is the practice of engaging the unique talents, beliefs, experiences, capabilities, and culture of individuals and groups in support of a common mission. Inclusive behavior acknowledges and respects differences.


At MITRE, we believe that fostering the collective strength of a wide spectrum of employees results in innovative solutions for our customers. For that reason, MITRE strives to create a culture that respects and leverages individual and cultural differences.


Key elements of inclusion


Actively including individuals from varying backgrounds in work teams and corporate activities to obtain a broader perspective and maximize individual and collective contributions. Creating a work environment that provides all employees the opportunity to reach their full potential and make their maximum contribution. Promoting values and practices that demonstrate openness, respect, collaboration, and appreciation of the validity of different points of view. MITRE's Corporate Diversity Action Council


The goal of the Corporate Diversity Action Council (CDAC) is to embed MITRE's commitment to diversity and inclusion into our work programs. CDAC works through three committees to achieve its goals.


The Workforce Committee supports MITRE's goal to recruit and retain a workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and the nation. The Operations Committee is focused on enhancing and improving MITRE work programs, products, and operations through the inclusion of diversity of staff and thought. The Education and Awareness Committee supports MITRE's longstanding commitment to creating and maintaining a multicultural workplace where talented individuals can flourish.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MITRE.

    Interview
