Diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging

Diversity in practice

Carey’s commitment to equity and equality in our nation

A message from the dean:

Dear Carey Community,

Businesses and business schools have a significant role to play in achieving equity in America. Indeed, business can be a force for good in society and business education can be vital in helping to promote economic development and address inequities that exist in business. At Carey Business School, we stand firmly alongside all who speak out for racial and social justice. Diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging must be an integral part of our school.  

As part of our commitment, we are closely examining and reimagining our culture, content, and collaborations. To date, we have introduced several initiatives focused on diversifying our faculty, staff, and student body and creating a stronger sense of equity and inclusion. For instance, we have collaborated with historically black colleges and universities and we lead or participate in community-oriented activities that leverage the talent of our students, staff, and faculty.   

But we know that academia and our own community has often fallen short, and this moment demands that we commit to new, equitable practices and intensive internal reflection. We are committed to this progress—knowing we can always strive to do more and be better. And together we will build a diverse, inclusive, and equitable community.
