The Drucker School of Management is committed to increasing the diversity of our organization (staff and faculty), our student population, and our content (curriculum, research, and community engagement). We ensure that people of all diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, belief systems, and abilities have equal access and opportunity in our school and programs; this means actively challenging and responding to bias, discrimination, or any other factors that compromise equal opportunity. We seek to create an environment where all diverse voices are welcome, feel fully valued, and are empowered to shape the conversations, decisions, and experiences that are important to the school and its mission. We foster an intellectual environment where diverse ideas are proposed, elicited, and discussed, and a professional environment in which people are encouraged to bring their whole selves to their work and feel that they are seen and supported by their colleagues and supervisors.
The Drucker School of Management is a special place. Grounded in the philosophy and principles of Peter Drucker, we believe in the importance of a functioning society, developing leaders and managers who are focused on people, performance, and self-management through employing a practice-based, transdisciplinary, and lifelong approach to learning.
Furthermore, we care about diversity, equity, and inclusion not only because we believe in the inherent rightness of these values, but because we believe diversity is essential to:
- Creating successful organizations that are people focused and purpose driven
- Fostering innovation and entrepreneurship
- Finding new answers to the world’s most pressing problems
- Building a functioning society with healthy institutions, political systems, and communities
- Envisioning and co-creating a free society
As Drucker noted: “Work must be organized in a such a manner that whatever strength, initiative, and competencies there are in individuals becomes a source of strength for and performance for the entire group. This is the first principle of organization: indeed, it is practically a definition of the purpose of the organization.” Furthermore, he said, “Diversity in the free world should be a source of strength for us, and of pride. Surely, we have no case at all unless it is the freedom to differ.”
