This page is about anti-racism and gender issues in business teaching cases.
The articles and webinars on the left-hand side explore some of the problems with how black and minority ethnic (BAME) people are represented in cases, and why it matters. Resources on the right-hand side focus on what educators and business schools can do to help address these problems. Also on the right-hand side are links to collections or compilations of teaching cases containing BAME protagonists, and/or which address topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
