Meet the Participants

group of Fuqua students

The Dialogue Project at Duke is an initiative aimed at reducing polarization through business. Students in their freshman, sophomore, or junior year in any academic major were invited to share proposals for how business can be a force for good in society. Grand prize winners spent a weekend on campus presenting these concepts to influential business leaders and networking with members of the Fuqua community. Meet some of these students and learn more about their new ideas for business.
