Teachable diversity moments in management: Leveraging case studies for teaching diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)
Keywords: DEI, Case Studies, pedagogical approaches
Abstract: Delivering and instructing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) topics are, in some instances, complex endeavors for instructors to undertake, and can equally difficult subject matter for students. The most common approach for teaching this important topic of DEI has typically focused on theoretical models, oftentimes marginalizing the application of this knowledge. Teaching with cases is a common pedagogical method that allows instructors to introduce to complex business problems in real world companies. Especially when considering DEI issues comprise and important ongoing conversation in management education, we propose a round table session that brings together management educators that use this approach to teach DEI and guide those interested in using them.
