AEM 2015 The Business Case for Diversity and Inclusion (spring semester, fulfills the CALS diversity requirement)
Students will develop cultural intelligence, the capability to relate and work effectively in culturally diverse situations; demonstrate an awareness and understanding of the cultural issues that impact business operations; and critically analyze diversity and inclusion issues and challenges in today’s diverse and globalized world.
AEM 3015 Developing Racial Equity in Organizations (fall semester, fulfills the CALS diversity requirement and the Dyson Grand Challenges project requirement)
Students will examine the roots of racial inequality, the ways our identities interact within the system of racial hierarchy, the policies that divide us, and the ways we can use our agency for social transformation within organizations. Students will apply course learnings as they work in a professional consulting team to deliver a high-quality product or service to a community partner, that helps develop racial equity within the organization and simulates the work they’ll do when they graduate.
