Yale School of Management Celebrates School’s Equity and Anti-Racism Efforts

Yale School of Management Celebrates School’s Equity and Anti-Racism Efforts

“Yale has previously injected anti-racist themes into its curriculum through the university’s Syllabus Writing Guide for professors.”

Has anyone told these folks that their school is named after a person who was actively involved in the slave trade?

Yale pushes more ‘anti-racism’ initiatives

In a recent article published by Yale School of Management (SOM), the university celebrated the performance of its inaugural Council on Anti-racism and Equity (CARE).

The 13-member council was made up of student, staff, faculty, and alumni stakeholder groups as a part of Dean Kerwin Charles’ plan to combat systemic racism.

The article, written by Meredith Crawford, Associate Director for Editorial & Design at Yale SOM, highlighted the council’s mission of identifying “existing issues and needs related to inclusivity, school culture, and representation, and to develop and recommend to Dean Charles plans of action based on these findings.”

“By the end of its session, CARE had compiled 36 recommendations,” Crawford wrote. “It would ultimately winnow that list down to a few, which the council presented during an hours-long discussion with Dean Charles.”

DerwCharles announced the launch of two initiatives originating from these recommendations, including “a high-impact speaker series that brings underrepresented professionals of color regularly to visit and engage with the SOM community”, and a video podcast “on issues of anti-racism and equity.”

Charles’ plan is to take quick action on issues such as increasing “the representation of Blacks among students and faculty” and to ask the SOM community to assess whether they are able to engage respectfully “with all members of the community, regardless of their place in the hierarchy.”

Yale has previously injected anti-racist themes into its curriculum through the university’s Syllabus Writing Guide for professors.

The guide features a section for Diversity Statements, which are designed to welcome “the range of student identities, experiences, and perspectives, particularly those that have been traditionally marginalized.”

Comments

Kerwin Charles was inserted into SOM by the Yale President, Peter Salovey, and he’s been mainly about race and antiracism ever since. It must be very unpleasant for some of the very good faculty they have there, and I doubt it’s doing the school’s reputation any good, but Dean Charles has never asked for consensus, and certainly not in a way that anyone would dare object. He just plowed ahead.

Elon Musk said Yale is the epicenter of wokeness among universities.
