Schulich Participates in Diversity and Inclusion Case Competition
Schulich MBA students recently competed in Telfer’s Diversity & Inclusion MBA Case Competition. This innovative competition gives future leaders a better appreciation of the opportunities for businesses to change and grow because of Canada’s diverse workforce’s. Teams examine emerging challenges and propose solutions pertaining to issues of diversity and inclusion in organizations. Schulich had a team of four MBA students participating: Nikita Karki, Abdelrahman Sahban Ali, Mathuri Mayakrishnan and Sanpreet Dhillon.
This year the case was focused on addressing systemic issues of anti-Black racism in Canadian corporations. It was an advanced prep case, giving teams one week to do their research and propose a recommendation.
“The students developed an outstanding presentation, aimed at providing Canadian corporations with a framework for increasing the number of black employees and board members in their companies,” said Joe Fayt, a Schulich MBA Marketing Instructor who also coaches students to engage in global case competitions. “Unfortunately the team did not advance to the finals, but I was so proud of their deck and their presentation. Their analysis was so thorough and insightful, and the presentation was professional and engaging.”
This is the sixth year of this competition, and Schulich has been participating since 2017. It is hosted by Telfer School of Management at Ottawa University, and is sponsored by RBC, Deloitte and EDC.
