|Transform business education by having diversity and inclusion imbedded as a core part of MBA curriculums around the world
The Council has identified inequality of access to education as a key deficiency in global governance that perpetuates the exclusion of specific segments of society. Business leaders must be equipped to understand the benefits that an inclusive strategy can bring, e.g. a more sustainable, successful and stable organization. The Council also recognizes that leaders face multiple challenges while designing modern diverse talent strategies and do not always know how to manage diversity effectively.
The Council has been focusing on understanding these challenges and opportunities by compiling a white paper. The document, entitled "Recommendations on Creating and Managing Inclusive Workforces", includes actionable managerial and policy recommendations intended to facilitate the effective creation and management of diverse work organizations.
In a pilot phase, the white paper along with other relevant sources and best practices could be shared with a selected group of academic institutions to inspire an MBA module, with the specific purpose of highlighting case studies of best practice, before being generalized to leading business schools.
