Tippie team places third at National Diversity Case Competition

A student team from the Tippie College of Business placed third at the 10th Annual National Diversity Case Competition hosted by the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.

The team included Jaiden Goodman, Baaba Saisie, Gina Waters, and Anna Zinselmeier. Goodman and Zinselmeier are peer tutors at the Frank Business Communication Center where they coach Tippie students in writing, speaking, and visual design.

“The Tippie College of Business is committed to graduating strong communicators and equipping students to think seriously about social issues relating to diversity and inclusion,” said Pamela Bourjaily, director of the Frank Business Communication Center and associate professor of instruction. “Our team’s placement at the premier diversity case competition in the country showcases our success in both those efforts.”

The case was provided by 3M’s Social Justice Strategy and Initiatives team and asked students to consider how the multinational company could engage “the broader organization to address some of the racial and socioeconomic inequities in our society.”

The competition is held annually over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. This year’s competition was conducted virtually and included teams from the University of Michigan, Boston College, and the University of Washington. For more information, visit the NDCC website.
