Talking About Someone Like Me: Implementing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Cases and Classes (se

When:  Jul 30, 2021 from 17:00 to 19:00 (FR)
The case method is a key pedagogical tool for business schools. Yet there is an increasing perception that cases feature a predominance of white male protagonists and neglect to address topics relating to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) critical for new generations of businesses leaders to navigate. The comparative lack of diverse protagonists perpetuates established leadership archetypes and deprives students of alternative role models. Even cases with diverse protagonists can perpetuate harmful stereotypes and norms around gender, race, national origin, age etc. – such as women being depicted as more emotional, less visionary, and less agentic than men. This PDW is for faculty interested in developing competencies in writing and/or delivering DEI cases in their teaching, as well as those interested in building an integrated approach to incorporating DEI-related cases in course materials in the wider curriculum. The session will include presentations and participative exercises. Participants will develop greater knowledge, skills and confidence in incorporating DEI into their case writing and teaching without technical or pedagogical difficulties. The workshop will be delivered by a team of presenters drawn from the Center for Equity, Gender, and Leadership at UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business, and The Case Centre.
