How does a world-renowned Finance professor bring issues of race and racial inequity into the business classroom? What insights can his experiences provide for other faculty who want to teach content related to race, racism and social justice but feel uncertain or apprehensive about doing so?
The Badavas Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning, Bentley Learning & Teaching Council, and Office of Diversity & Inclusion are pleased to co-sponsor this session with Harvard Professor Mihir Desai (Harvard Business School - Finance and Harvard Law School). Professor Desai will talk about a new case he created on the Tulsa Massacre, how he addressed the challenges that came with the unfamiliar experience of teaching deeply disturbing and painful topics related to racial injustice, and how he gained confidence at grappling with race and racism in his classroom.
