Q Talks Podcast miniseries on race and business

The Q Talks Podcast miniseries on race and business focuses on the myriad of ways systemic racism affects businesses, employees, and communities.

The Quinlan School of Business launched a Q Talks Podcast miniseries, Race and Business, in June 2020. This miniseries seeks to engage the community in discussions around systemic racism in corporations, in our community, and in our personal lives. 

The podcasts feature professors, staff, students, and community partners sharing research, professional insights, and personal experiences.
