    How Can MBAs Improve Diversity in Business?

    Apr 23, 2021

    It wouldn’t be in the nature of the MBA culture to say that “business has a diversity problem.” As a recent report shows, business surely does have a diversity problem: 81 of London’s FTSE 100 companies have precisely zero ethnic minority board members. And over 100 FTSE 350 companies have failed to meet government-set targets of having a board of at least one-third women. It wouldn’t be in business schools’ nature because these institutions, and their MBA students and graduates, aren’t about problems. They’re about solutions. For instance, the University of Oxford has recently partnered with the Robert Toigo Foundation to provide up to $10,000 in leadership development training and career coaching to support underrepresented professionals towards senior roles. MBA schools and students are innovating strategies to promote diversity in the fields they feed. There is a lot of work to be done. But it is in the nature of MBA culture to say that business needs diversity solutions – and here’s what we will do.
