The purpose of the Council is to identify opportunities and challenges associated with promoting diversity and inclusion in our learning and work environments, to establish metrics for tracking progress, and to make recommendations for implementing best practices in diversity and inclusion.
The Diversity and Inclusion Council is comprised of faculty and staff that support all of the School of Business undergraduate and graduate programs on the main campus and at our Charlotte Center. The Council was established in spring 2011. For a current list of members, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are proud that the Wake Forest University School of Business community is a diverse one, as this not only enriches the learning experience, but also reflects one of our core beliefs: that the classroom should be as diverse as the workplace. In today’s business world, it is the leaders who have surrounded themselves with different perspectives that are defining success. Creating a workplace that is representative of many different backgrounds and points of view is not just the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do.
