After over two decades in front of the classroom, Sloan Distinguished Professor of Management JoAnne Yates is spending some time in the dean's office. Long known for her research on organizational communications -- particularly how it is impacted by technology -- Deputy Dean Yates is taking advantage of her opportunity to champion another issue close to her heart: diversity. Believing that diversity has real educational value, Yates has made advancing gender equity a priority. Through this work, Yates hopes to provide role models for women in b-school and expose all students to a wide range of points of view.

Achieving U.S. Energy Security Through Energy Diversity

Daya talks about her entrepreneurial spirit and finding her way into the consumer beauty world with connections and education gained at MIT Sloan. Susan reveals some information about upcoming projects between Estee Lauder and MIT Sloan students, addressing some of the issues facing those selling to the multi-cultural luxury beauty market.

G-Lab '09: Smart Card, Kuala Lumpur

This chapter in MIT Sloan's G-Lab podcast series focuses on a team of Sloan Fellows working in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a local technology company. The company, whose flagship product was a type of smart card, was seeking a short-term action plan as well as an assessment of smart card trends and technology recommendations. The team, consisting of four Fellows with a variety of cultural and industry backgrounds, was able to leverage the benefits of diversity for the success of the project. Team member Camilo Syllos, SF '09, talks about the importance of managing expectations--on the part of the client and the team--and his belief that a successful G-Lab result requires creativity, dedication, and an openness to other cultures and ideas.
