This course explores race in America and will challenge your understanding of the roles of business in both perpetuating inequity and effecting change. Through pre-trip sessions and an immersive eight-day exploration of the American South that connects back to race, culture and business practices in the Pacific Northwest and nationally, this program will provide students with a lens through which to evaluate business in the broader U.S. social structure. This class and trip are co-led by Sankofa Impact, a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to confronting racism and resistance through place-based learning experiences, in partnership with the Foster School of Business and the Global Business Center
