Today’s podcast is about the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) report that was recently published by the school.  Loyal listeners of the podcast may recall that back in 2019 in Episode 69, we spoke about the school’s inaugural DEI report, which offered key background and insights on the school’s initiative. We once again welcome Professor Sarah A. Soule and Lori Nisihura MacKenzie to discuss the 2020 DEI report, related results and more.  Isabel Andrade, a second-year Stanford MBA student, joins the conversation about diversity as well.

Before you tune in, here’s a bit more background about our guests, who are part of the team behind the initiatives and report at Stanford GSB.

Isabel Andrade is a second-year MBA and MA in Education candidate. She’s passionate about creating spaces where people can connect across differences, a passion she’s explored by serving on the GSB’s Diversity Committee.
