Session 02B

How to mix all the colours on your palette: diversity and inclusiveness in higher education

In the aftermath of recent world events, citizens and organisations have been forced to take a harder look at diversity, racial inequality and social injustice. This shift has been mirrored in the higher education community. However, there is no one-size-fits-all approach, no template to follow. This session aims to show how higher education institutions across the globe can address this increasing societal need, with concrete examples from the business school community.
