Win up to $10,000 and Strengthen Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Skills in the World’s Future Leaders!
In recognition of recent events across the world, it is an extremely important time to support and strengthen diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) skills and knowledge for today’s students, who will become tomorrow’s global business leaders. That’s why WDI Publishing and the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, and its Sanger Leadership Center are joining together to invite you to enter our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Global Case Writing Competition and submit an academic case study about a DEI-related business dilemma within one or across multiple business disciplines. Enter Track 1, Track 2, or both.
We encourage case authors to feature diverse protagonists who may have nontraditional, yet inclusive, management styles. This is another reason why, by supporting this competition, the sponsors aim to:
- Encourage and reward the development and publication of new, relevant academic case studies that focus on DEI in business and/or feature diverse protagonists as business leaders.
- Publish teaching materials that will increase student understanding of the unique and realistic challenges of creating, implementing and sustaining DEI in a business or organization anywhere in the world.
- Present learning opportunities for students that challenge current ideas about DEI in business and that spur critical thinking for creative pathways for more positive change.
First, second and third place prizes will be awarded in Tracks 1 and 2. WDI Publishing will formally publish and distribute the winning cases in Track 1. The Sanger Leadership Center will formally publish and distribute the winners in Track 2 as part of its Leadership Crisis program.
Choose Track 1 or Track 2 or both.
