Research Agenda

We will embark on research projects below to build knowledge of creative leadership and how it supports diversity, inclusion, and innovation:

  • How do creative leaders influence others within the organization to utilize diversity to drive innovation?
  • What are the best practices of creative leaders in the utilization of diversity and inclusion to drive innovation?
  • Given the somewhat ineffectiveness of traditional models of diversity inclusion and training, how can leaders use creative thinking to promote inclusion and respect for diversity within their organizations?
