The University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business continues to lead the way in making CQ a core part of their school’s DNA. Most recently, nearly 30 Ross staff members participated in our In-House Unconscious Bias (UB) Certification training. Staff participation ranged from members of the Admissions team, Undergraduate and Graduate programs, Human Resources, and Career Services.
The 1.5 Day Unconscious Bias training, facilitated by Dr. Sandra Upton, VP of Educational Initiatives, recently underwent a major revision, which has placed a much stronger emphasis on the relationship between CQ and Unconscious Bias. This new revision offers high-impact CQ Strategies for managing our biases. Taryn Petryn, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, and Liz Muller, Managing Director of Global Initiatives, have both played a significant role in moving the CQ needle at Ross. This recent training was yet another tangible demonstration of their commitment to creating a culturally intelligent campus community where all business students can thrive and feel a strong sense of belonging.
