IDEAL Week begins Monday, March 28 – Friday, April 1. IDEAL Week is your opportunity to celebrate your fellow students and explore how the College of Business uses Inclusivity, Diversity, Equitability, Accessibility and Leadership to create business for a better world.
Come join us as we showcase why it's important to become an IDEAL business ram!
Day 1 of IDEAL Week is hosted by Peer-to-Peer Mentoring.
As we return to an in-person college experience it's easy to feel out of place after being socially distanced, behind a mask or in a virtual classroom for so long.
IDEAL Week gets started in the Rockwell West Foyer. Stop by our table and share your strengths and identity and add to our IDEAL sign. While you’re there, take a moment to snap a photo and help us document the first IDEAL Week in pictures. Share your candid photos, selfies, and group pictures with our social media tag #IamanIDEALRam.
Learn more about the events taking place during IDEAL Week and start a conversation about what belonging means to you and the College of Business.
Day 2 of IDEAL Week is hosted by Women in Business Association & LatinX Association.
Share your voice, values, and ideas on day two of IDEAL Week. Join us in Rockwell Hall West to contribute your words and drawings to the Diversity Mural, a 10’x12’ tarp that will hang in Rockwell Hall for the entire week. Share your thoughts as you respond to the prompt, “How do you contribute to diversity in business?”
Day 3 of IDEAL Week is hosted by Business Diversity Leadership Alliance & First Generation.
Pastry for your thoughts? Stop by the Rockwell West Foyer and meet with the First Generation and the Business Diversity Leadership Alliance clubs to talk about your thoughts on equity and how students’ beliefs and lived experiences play a role in life at the College of Business. After you’ve shared your ideas on a speech bubble, treat yourself to a tasty pastry.
Everyone has a story to tell, and here’s your chance to share yours. Join us in Rockwell 211 to take part in our video story booth project. You and your fellow Biz Rams are invited to share your thoughts on equity, and explore what it means to you. You’ll work with a moderator who will ask you thought-provoking questions like:
Your video responses will be recorded and archived for future IDEAL Week celebrations.
Conversations about equity are happening in spaces far beyond the halls of CSU and the College of Business. The First Generation and BDLA clubs have invited a guest speaker from Charles Schwab to speak to the College of Business community and provide real-world examples of how JDE&I principles apply to your future career opportunities. Equity is more than just a value at the College of Business, and this guest presentation showcases how companies and organizations outside of our campus ensure that they are creating equitable spaces for their employees.
Day 4 of IDEAL Week is hosted by Consulting Club & Dean's Student Leadership Council.
Learn the ins-and-outs of navigating Rockwell Hall and visit the Consulting Club to learn some helpful tips to get around the College of Business. They’ll highlight different routes for all body needs.
Help your LinkedIn profile stand out with these tips and tricks from the Dean’s Student Leadership Club and a Career Management Center advisor. A polished LinkedIn profile is critical for aspiring business profiles, and this session will talk about the accessibility of the LinkedIn platform as well as best practices for building your profile. While you’re learning, enjoy some snacks provided by the DSLC.
Come cheer on our four finalist teams as they battle it out for the top prize!
Fostering justice, diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace is critical to creating environments that support everyone's success. To better prepare our students to use business for a better world and affect positive change, the CSU College of Business has launched the Justice, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Case Competition, made possible by sponsorship from New Belgium Brewing and FirstBank.
