What We Do
CEDWC provides opportunities for students to engage with issues of diversity and workplace culture as part of their classes, in experiential learning settings, in large public events, and through connections with industry professionals. The center funds and promotes research on diversity and workplace culture issues and provides opportunities for scholars to share their research with one another, with students and with industry.
We are driven to build workplaces that are focused on equity, inclusivity and the ability of each person to be their authentic self at work. The “business case” for diversity is overwhelming. More diverse companies perform better financially, are more innovative, and are better at attracting and retaining talent. Substantive efforts at diversity and inclusion require multiple voices at the table, a willingness to have difficult conversations and a sense of humility. CEDWC brings together industry leaders, government officials and academics to engage in these important conversations.
