Global Diversity and Inclusion Summit

Bridging Belonging and Societal Impact

December 7–9, 2020 | Virtual Conference

To support the vision of business education as a force for good, accredited schools are expected to illustrate how they foster and promote curriculum and curricular activities to make positive societal impact. History teaches us that diversity and inclusion initiatives are at risk of neglect during crisis, and many organizations will prioritize perceived urgent measures at the expense of inclusion. Despite the crisis, business schools must commit to initiatives and take responsibility, requiring inclusive practices that support the student body, the faculty, the administration, and the school's fundamentals.

This event will offer a network of support and practical tools for professionals seeking data, best practices, and insights to move initiatives forward and convince others of the rationale for change.

The 2020 Global Diversity and Inclusion Summit Follows Four Tracks
Learn why diversity, inclusion and belonging are more important now than ever, where we should invest, and what we should prioritize as we respond to the crisis. 
Learn how to build infrastructure in your school, build a team, gain buy-in from faculty, and ensure inclusive practices are being carried out through your hiring, recruiting, curriculum, and training efforts.
Learn how others are taking their strategy to the next level and enhancing efforts of building inclusion into planning, budgeting, hiring, recruiting, curriculum, and training.
Learn what traits companies look for, how you can ensure graduates have these traits, what corporations can learn from b-schools, and how b-schools have supported millennials/Gen Z.
