Dyson’s motto is Our Business is a Better World, and while learning to use business for the greater good is a part of Dyson’s curriculum and co-curricular activities, we go one step further by providing safe forums for open dialogue around topics related to diversity and inclusion and how they impact our world.
Topics at the forefront of our discussions have included the following:
- The intersection of issues like identity and social group memberships (both currently and in historical contexts)
- Theories of justice
- Moral reasoning and responsibility
- Critical consciousness
- Common ground
- Cultural intelligence
- Unconscious bias
By openly discussing complex topics, we aim to explore root causes and examine avenues for positive change.
Dyson students are also encouraged to enroll in this new optional elective, AEM 2015 The Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion. This course is designed to cultivate a theoretical and practical understanding and application of the business case for diversity and inclusion, and help develop cultural intelligence for working successfully in today’s diverse, globalized world.
