Following global protests, issues of race and the legacy of colonialism are more pressing than ever. Universities around the world have been asked “How can they decolonize their curriculum”. In this virtual workshop, we will explore what it means to decolonize the business school; what this might look like in practice in terms of curriculum design, teaching, administration and research. We will also encourage people to reflect on their own education practices and identify areas for change. Finally, we hope to identify specific actions that we can take to decolonize business schools. The workshop will be useful for people teaching and working in business schools, providing an overview of what decolonizing means for the business school. It will give participants an opportunity to identify practical steps they might take to push for a transformational change to decolonize the business school.
