The Jonathan M. Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship at Brown University is excited to invite students, faculty, staff, and community members, to a one-day conference - “Entrepreneurship at the Intersection of Diversity and Inequality” - on Monday, December 5, 2016. To achieve its mission of making entrepreneurship an essential part of the Brown experience, the Center hosts events from a wide range of disciplines and blends academic expertise with real-world practical experience. Our conference illustrates this commitment.
The Center for Entrepreneurship integrates student groups, course offerings, and faculty entrepreneurial research by serving as an interdisciplinary space for entrepreneurship learning and scholarship. We encourage and foster critical thought and debate on the growing role that entrepreneurship plays on the local and global stage.
The conference will provide critical perspectives on how entrepreneurship has served as a potential pathway toward inclusion and socioeconomic mobility, particularly in times of exclusion and marginalization. The conference will highlight the interdisciplinary character for the center and engage the intersectionality of race/ethnicity, gender, class, sexuality, differently-abled bodies, immigrant status and the simultaneity of agency and inequity of power and privilege in entrepreneurial endeavors.
