State of Inclusive Excellence: Building Lindner’s Inclusion Mosaic
Valuing individual strengths and supporting one another in our community
The Carl H. Lindner College of Business has been diligently creating its own mosaic, with our pieces coming together to foster access, promote belonging and encourage inclusive leadership.
Lindner has launched collaborative initiatives for historically underrepresented students eager to become business problem solvers. Programs with Withrow University High School and UC Blue Ash College will prepare students on their journeys to Lindner.
As part of Lindner’s First-Year Experience, students engage in topics of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. From basic definitions to the business case for inclusion, students are furnished with the foundation for diversity learning that they can expand upon throughout their stay at Lindner and UC.
Allen Woods, Lindner’s inaugural Entrepreneur-in-Residence, will focus on inclusive entrepreneurship by building dedicated resources and programming to entrepreneurship-minded students. A co-founder of MORTAR, a local business development company, Woods brings a wealth of experience in enabling historically marginalized entrepreneurs to have successful businesses.
Lindner Inclusive Excellence Council
Founded in 2019, the Lindner Inclusive Excellence Council has built components to help the college advance an inclusive culture. The Inclusive Teaching toolkit provides Lindner faculty with resources, best practices and guidelines to best serve all students. Additionally, the council developed a system by which faculty and staff who participate in inclusion-related professional development will be recognized with an inclusive leader designation.
While our inclusion mosaic is far from complete, it is wonderful to see these unique pieces forming a cohesive whole at Lindner.
