+IMPACT STUDIO ROOM - 2ND FLOOR EXECUTIVE RESIDENCE

How are Ross faculty members advancing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals through business research? Each month, Business+Impact hosts an interactive design micro-charette themed around one of these goals. During the month of November, we will address Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities. Three award-winning Ross faculty members will share their research in an informal setting and students will have the opportunity to brainstorm possible next steps for how the research can be applied to real-world applications that make a positive impact.

Faculty and subjects of research include:

Jun Li: New Research Looks At Ways to Help Stop Airbnb Racial Discrimination

A. Yeşim Orhun: Why poor families are paying more for everyday items like toilet paper

Chris Rider: Career mobility and racial diversity in law firms

Due to high interest in these workshops, we must cap attendance at 25. We aim to keep the numbers of participants at a size that can accommodate the space capacity of the +Impact Studio and provide meaningful group discussion.
