Course Overview:
Despite having a central role in American societ y, examinations of the role of race in business and the U.S. economy remains a taboo topic in the business curriculum. This course explores a multitude of perspectives related to race and diversity in a broad spectrum of industry settings. Using a moral reasoning lens, we will also consider the extent to which corporate and institutional policies can contribute to ethnic marginalization and engender a specific corporate culture around race. Understanding how choice in policy, the rule of law, and the moral standards have impacted opportunities and access to markets along demographic variables will allow students to make their own independent assessments of, and contributions to, viable strategies aimed at an inclusive business community of the future. This course will use a combination of lecture, individual readings of chapters, articles and books, student-led class discussions, case analysis, and a project that requires the students to interact with a diverse group of local and regional small businesses and entrepreneurs.
