In August 2020, management scholars convened for the first virtual Academy of Management Conference. As part of this conference, the OB, GDO, and HR Divisions co-hosted a Professional Development Workshop (PDW) called "Tips, Tricks, and New Ideas for Approaching Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Classroom". The goal of this PDW was to bring together a community of instructors looking to share advice and learn more about integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) topics in the classroom.
This session included teaching tips and stories from an esteemed set of DEI researchers: Dr. Stephan Böhm (University of St. Gallen), Dr. Stephanie Creary (Wharton School of Business), Dr. Oscar Holmes IV (Rutgers School of Business- Camden), and Dr. Alison Konrad (Ivey Business School). In addition, we solicited advice, tips, and recommendations from participants and members of the GDO community. This list of resources is a compilation of the advice gathered as a result of this initiative. We thank everyone who contributed to this list of resources and hope others find it useful in effectively bringing DEI topics into the classroom.Please keep your eyes open for the next PDW focused on bringing lessons about BLM, racism, and oppression into the classroom sponsored by the OB Division at the 2021 AOM Conference.
