What innovative approaches can academics and entrepreneurs take to spark systems change and bring greater diversity, equity, and inclusion to higher education and the communities in which they operate? How can academia and industry work together to drive change at scale? These were some of the questions explored at Accelerating Equity: Universities Sparking Systems Change hosted by IE University and Cornell Tech.
While there are some positive developments in improving access, what is clear is that there is still so much work to be done. Academia and industry have to be creative, bold, and visionary in creating policies, and structures that will foster an inclusive culture and truly move the needle in broadening university talent pipelines.
