Workshop on Decolonizing the Business School

Decolonizing the Business School: Panel Discussion and Workshop.

An ETHOS Event

July 1, 2-5pm BST. Via zoom.

ETHOS: The Centre for Responsible Enterprise at City, University of London is pleased to invite you to a workshop on decolonizing the business school. Following global protests, issues of race and the legacy of colonialism are more pressing than ever. Universities around the world have been asked how they can decolonize their curriculum. This process is more advanced in the humanities and some social sciences. Business Schools need to join the process.

In this virtual workshop, we will explore what it means to decolonize the business school. We will also look at what this might look like in practice in terms of curriculum design, teaching, administration and research. During the workshop, we will bring together a group of experts on the topic who work in business schools as well as other disciplines. We will also encourage people to reflect on their own education practices and identify areas for change. Finally, we hope to identify specific actions that we can take to decolonize business schools.

The workshop will be useful for people teaching and working in business schools. It will provide an overview of what decolonizing means for the business school. It will also give participants an opportunity to work in small groups to identify practical steps they might take to push for a transformational change to decolonize the business school.

Panelists include Gurminder Bhambra (University of Sussex), Sadhvi Dar (Queen Mary University of London and Cofounder of Decolonizing Alliance), Stella Nkomo (University of Pretoria), Banu Ozkazanc-Pan (Brown University) and Jenny Rodriguez (University of Manchester and Cofounder of Decolonizing Alliance).
