Establishing diversity enabling infrastructures within our institutions and among our stakeholders today may just require some rebellious thinking, positive activism and an appetite for creative risk-taking. This session aims to explore the creative, more informal spaces within a business school that can often be activated in a way that cultivates diverse academic talent. This session will show how connecting across informal learning spaces can build dynamic cultures that question traditional content and focus on developing individuals as co-creators of learning. Working at the margins and edges of the business school, blurring the formal lines of professions, academia, and industry can enable faculty and students to engage in unique and unusual ways. Three unique examples that include, a business school artist-in-residence program, a queering business campaign, a First Nations business master’s program will provoke an interactive dialogue on how we can develop more creative cultures in business schools that cultivate diverse academic talent.
