Bridging the Wealth Gap in Tribal Communities
Wed. 01/18 11a: The growing wealth gap between the rich and the poor in this country is now part of the national consciousness. Where does Native America fit into this escalating debate? More Native families live in poverty than any other group in the country. One solution being offered is to entice more Native students to enter business school. But often getting a business degree and the Indian worldview creates a conflict.
How can we use business management and academics to reduce poverty in tribal communities? Guests are Joe Gladstone (Blackfeet/Nez Perce) doctoral student/New Mexico State University, and Dan Stewart (Spokane) Associate Professor of Management/Gonzaga University.
