Equity Fluent Leaders: The Value of Inclusion & Diversity

Dialogues on race is a student-led seminar in which a diverse group of students meets regularly to: reflect on how our racial identities have impacted our experiences; listen to and learn from others — both those who share our experiences and those who don’t; build understanding and conviction around how race and racism impact our personal and professional communities; and make concrete plans for interrupting racist systems and creating inclusive environments at Haas and beyond.

“Five years after graduating I returned to audit Professor McElhaney’s course and am appreciating just how savvy the students are on world and social issues compared to any group I experienced during my time at Haas previously. These students truly represent the equity fluent leadership McElhaney touts. Being in the presence of this caliber of discussion is a welcome reset for my intellect.” – Laurie Peterson, Founder & CEO, Build & Imagine
