Alison Davis-Blake on diversity drive at Michigan Ross

February 7, 2016

Michigan Ross Dean Alison Davis-Blake talks about diversity and inclusion in the Times Higher Education article, “University of Michigan: business school dean on diversity drive.” She explains the IDO (Identity and Diversity in Organization) program that has become a requirement for all Michigan Ross undergraduates.

Davis-Blake became the first female dean at the Ross School of Business, and is no stranger to diversity. “Diversity is, relatively speaking, easy to work on – [in terms of] just getting numbers of people. Pushing all the levers that affect inclusion and how people feel and how others treat them, is much more difficult,” she tells Times Higher Education.
