Next Steps for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at CBS

In 2018, at the urging of students and faculty, the Business School formed two committees to study issues surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the CBS community. In this episode, Gita Johar, Vice Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Meyer Feldberg Professor of Business, tells us about the positive results of the committees’ work: a renewed and keener focus on DEI at the School. Johar explains what diversity, equity, and inclusion means for faculty and students, and also defines its role in curriculum and course materials. Johar is clear that there’s still work to be done, discussing steps the School needs to take to address DEI issues in both the short and long term.

From the Military to CBS: a Veterans Day episode with Brooke Jones-Chinetti ’18, Dan Brillman ’12, and Taylor Justice ’14

In honor of Veterans Day, Bizcast is revisiting conversations we had with three CBS alumni, all former service members. All three are working to support veterans in their transition to civilian life. EMBA graduate Brooke Jones-Chinetti ’18 served in the Army for nearly ten years, which included a tour of duty in Iraq. After her commitment, Jones-Chinetti worked for JPMorgan Chase’s Office of Veterans’ Affairs. This inspired her to found Your Sequel, a networking organization designed to help female ex-service members make connections in the business world. Air Force pilot Dan Brillman ’12 and Army veteran Taylor Justice ’14 heard countless stories from their cohort about how complicated it was to access clinical and non-clinical social services. This led to their launching Unite Us, a centralized software platform that streamlines the connection between people and healthcare and other social service providers. As part of our salute to all veterans, here are Brooke, Dan, and Taylor telling their stories of life in the military, at Columbia Business School, and at their start-ups.

Kesha Cash ’10: Investing in Underserved Communities

On this episode of Bizcast, we revisit our conversation with Impact America Fund founder Kesha Cash ’10. Namedone of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People for 2018, Kesha told us about a point in her career when she needed to reconcile that she was “living two lives.” Cash grew up in a low-income family, first in rural South Carolina, then in Orange County, California. After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in applied mathematics, Cash embarked on a career in financial services that took her to Wall Street boardrooms and aboard private jets. Through it all, Cash never forgot her early life experiences, which inspired her to enroll in the Business School, where she cultivated her passion for impact investing and social responsibility. In 2013, Cash launched the Impact America Fund, which makes investments in companies run by entrepreneurs from low and moderate income communities of color.
