Morning Breakout Sessions

Strengthening the Climate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion 
Heather Caruso Assistant Dean, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion; Executive Director, Morrison Family Center for Marketing and Data Analytics; Adjunct Assistant Professor of Management and Organizations

Together with the broader UCLA community, Anderson has committed to provide “an environment in which all are included, all are given an equal opportunity to learn and explore, in which differences as well as commonalities are celebrated, and in which dissenting viewpoints are not only tolerated but encouraged.” Sounds good, right? But how can we accomplish this in our community and workplace, recognizing that we ourselves can be the most influential elements of “environment” for one another? In active conversation with one another and Heather Caruso, Assistant Dean for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, this session will introduce you to the Engaged, Courageous, Humble & Open (ECHO) approach, with a focus on how it can both improve our individual interactions and powerfully strengthen Anderson’s climate for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

From Vision to Reality: Creating a World Without Disease
Moderator: Victor Tabbush Adjunct Professor Emeritus, UCLA Anderson
Craig Fox Harold Williams Chair in Management, UCLA Anderson
Cat Oyler '99 VP, Global Public Health, Tuberculosis at Johnson & Johnson

Imagine a world where we know when we need to go to the doctor before we feel sick. A world where we can maintain or restore our health, rather than treating the symptoms of a disease. A world where we truly have healthcare, not disease care. In this session, Cat will share the story of going from an aspirational idea to the reality of beginning to create the healthcare future we all want—a world without disease.
