Diversity & Inclusion
What is Diversity?
At the Wake Forest University School of Business, we define diversity very broadly. Diversity refers to the mix of differences individuals contribute to a defined setting (e.g. team, work unit, classroom) due to their identity with different groups. These social category groups can include race, ethnicity, gender, physical abilities, sexual orientation, age, religion, and socio-economic class, as well as other dimensions that impact the way individuals think and behave.
What is Inclusion?
An organizational climate of inclusion is one in which human resource diversity is valued and in which individuals from diverse backgrounds feel welcomed and included.
In the School of Business, our mission is to advance the greater good through developing passionate ethical business leaders who achieve results with integrity through thought leadership that positively impacts the practice of business.
We believe that diversity and inclusion are essential practices for enabling us to develop students with the problem solving and critical thinking skills they will need to be effective leaders in organizations.
