“Go from moment to momentum” has never been more important.
The Kelley School has long been a champion of diversity in education and in business. Our efforts have resulted in more than 100 initiatives that have led to significant improvements in recruitment and retention of diverse students. Nevertheless, the Black Lives Matter movement has shown us that we have not done enough to address systemic racism, prejudice, and privilege, or to prepare our students to be anti-racist business leaders. The Kelley School resolves to do more and do better. We have established committees to examine our systems, structures, and curricula, and to ensure a continuous dialogue with our students, faculty, and staff. Soon, we will be announcing initiatives to address our shortcomings. Only through difficult conversations will we truly begin to achieve our goals of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. The moment is now.
