Business And Bagels: Putting A Business Case For Diversity Into Action
February 18, 2021
8:00 am-9:15 am
How can organizations become more diverse, equitable and inclusive in ways that help drive strategic goals, enhance performance, and sustain structural and cultural change in the business environment?
As the business environment becomes increasingly complex and uncertain, approaches to diversity, equity, and belonging must respond while driving internal change. Quinetta Roberson, Ph.D., uses insight from research and practice to compare current approaches and best practices while highlighting what works, what does not, and more importantly, why.
Business and Bagels participants will learn how to derive greater value from diversity investments and evidence-based solutions aimed at creating more inclusive environments and improving business success.
February’s Business and Bagels is delighted to host Quinetta Roberson, Ph.D., newly appointed John A. Hannah Distinguished Professor in the Broad College of Business, Department of Management and the Department of Psychology in the College of Social Science. With degrees in organizational behavior and finance, Roberson focuses her attention on the business case for diversity and organizational justice while connecting with business and labor relations professionals.
Roberson comes to Spartan nation from Villanova University as the Fred J. Springer Endowed Chair in Business Leadership and Professor in the Department of Management and Operations at The Villanova School of Business. She serves as an elected member of the Academy of Management’s Executive Committee, where she was inducted as president in August 2020. Her work furthers MSU’s current No. 1 ranking in industrial organization psychology and No. 1 ranking in management research productivity in top academic journals.
