The diversity of our students and our community is what makes the GSB such a dynamic place. People often ask us how we define diversity. For us, it's really about the breadth of perspective our students bring. You've probably read Derrick Bolton's thoughts on the subject, but if not, take a look here.
The breadth of perspective at the GSB is incredible. If you're interested in seeing this in action, there are two upcoming events you might be interested in. The xxFactor: Women Changing the World event will be held on 16 May. Hosted by the Women in Management club, the alumnae Women's Initiative Network, and the MBA Admission Office, this conference is geared toward women who are interested in applying to business school. This year's conference will focus on who attends business school and why, what kinds of opportunities are available for MBA graduates, and why experiential learning is transformational. All prospective students are welcome to participate. Applications are due 10 April. You can find more information here.
Many Voices: Perspectives on Diversity is hosted jointly by the Asian Society, Black Business Students Association, Hispanic Business Students Association, and the MBA Admission Office. This event provides the opportunity for you to meet GSB alumni, students, faculty, and staff, and to gain insight into our admission process. The event will be held on 17 May, and again, all are welcome. To attend Many Voices, you need to apply by 10 April. More information is available here.
Seeing the range of ideas and talent within our community might just help you envision how you would make a difference at the GSB. We look forward to meeting you at one or both of the events!
