Making an immediate impact.

Business leaders have significant opportunities when advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace, and business schools also play a critical role. In addition to attracting, nurturing, and connecting diverse talent to business opportunities, they must also train all students to have an EDI mindset. This is a path to not only ensuring workplace diversity but also increasing representation in the boardroom, as today’s talent pool will be tomorrow’s senior management, leadership, and C-suite.
