Is a Degree Required for Success in Today's Workplace--Myth or Reality?
In light of COVID-19 precautions, the Dialogue has been postponed until further notice.
Date: Tuesday, March 10, 2020
Organizations speak to the need to recruit and retain great talent. What often comes along with this is a focus on educational credentials and in some cases particular educational pedigrees. In many industries and especially in higher education, there are candidates who have the educational credentials and those who may not. The question remains: How critical is an educational pedigree for success? And, could our preference be related to any unconscious biases we may possess? Our Dialogue will explore these issues and will be moderated by Renee Graham, editor and columnist from the Boston Globe with guest speakers Kim Dukes, Diversity and Inclusion Talent Strategist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and Professor Laura Huang, PhD, Associate Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School.
