Leadership, Diversity and Race

NYU Wagner is committed to advancing research that studies how diverse voices make systems and organizations more effective, transparent, inclusive, and fair. This work expands leadership theory by exploring the relationships between race, ethnicity, diversity, identity, and leadership in organizations.

Race and leadership

These items explicitly explore the relationship between race, ethnicity, and leadership.  They suggest multiple ways in which these topics intersect, including how different racial groups may take up leadership work and understanding how leaders from different backgrounds are perceived.

Working in racially diverse groups and environments

Materials in this category explore the dynamics of racially diverse groups, organizations, and communities. In addition, they address efforts to encourage productive cross-racial relationships and environments.  

Race, identity and action research

Action research often sheds light on issues and dynamics related to race and identity.  These pieces investigate different approaches that action researchers have taken.
