Apple Podcasts | Android | Spotify | Google Podcasts | Email | RSS

In this episode of Heterodox Out Loud, we explore a concept revered by many and challenged by few in higher education—the value of diversity. We look beyond the surface of this belief, and consider how different kinds of diversity impact team building, decision making, and collective intelligence.   Our guest on the show is Ravi Kudesia, Assistant Professor at the Fox School of Business at Temple University. He teaches courses on Power, Influence, and Negotiation, has won numerous teaching awards, and has appeared in The Financial Times, New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, CNN, and a number of other outlets. Ravi’s blog post: "Diversity Is Not Enough: Why Collective Intelligence Requires Both Diversity and Disagreement" For more from Ravi, you can follow him on Twitter at @rskudesia. Let us know what you think! For comments and questions email This episode was hosted by Zach Rausch, and produced by Davies Content.
