Why Diversity?

“A diverse workforce contributes to economic growth and development by stimulating an innovative, healthy and stable community. As a global company with employees and operations around the world, Newmont is proud to support the Inaugural Diversity and Business Ethics Case Competition and the talented students who embrace this challenging opportunity.”

The  Diversity and Business Ethics Case Competition (DBECC) is hosted by the Office of Diversity Affairs and the Center for Education on Social Responsibility at the Leeds School of Business. DBECC is an opportunity for students to gain real world experience while competing in a case challenge focused on diversity and ethics in a business setting. We aim to bring together diverse and well-rounded students from business schools across Colorado. We invite interested students to bring their knowledge, skills, and creativity to compete with other diverse talent within Colorado to win the 2019 DBECC.
