DETROIT ― The Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University is starting an institute to integrate a focus on organizational diversity and inclusive leadership.

The Institute for Leadership and Diversity will consolidate and expand the Detroit school’s leadership service and research programs. It also will seek to offer innovative student, community and executive leadership education and development opportunities.

Associate Dean and Professor Toni Somers and management faculty member Sheri Perelli are the institute’s faculty co-directors.

Efforts that already have taken place at the school include the Young Entrepreneurs Academy that’s focused on middle school and high school girls. The school also launched a corporate mentor program, which pairs first-generation college students with Detroit executives.

A new home for the business school is scheduled to open in 2018.
