Black in the Boardroom Alumni Panel

Tuesday, February 6 | 12:00pm 12:45pm

The number of Black individuals represented in upper management/leadership at the corporate level in business is still significantly low, according to the Harvard Business Review. Particularly, the Harvard Business Review highlights that there are several barriers that hinder the progress of Black individuals looking to move to upper management and into leadership roles. One of the key issues that hinders Black progress in leadership and upper management, is gaining an introduction to the board. Mentorship through networking opportunities is an essential way for companies to support their Black employees in their trajectory towards upper management.   

At the Wisconsin School of Business, our MBA programs strive to support Black MBA students and our alumni through career support, mentoring for students of color, and in our relationship with The Consortium. Please join us at our Black in The Boardroom event where several of our MBA alums discuss their experience in the business world post-MBA.  

This virtual session will feature MBA alumni voices, including:

  • Fatima Barry, MBA ’16, Vice President, Head of HR, Global Quality, Edwards Lifesciences
  • Tosan Olley, MBA ’15, Head of FP&A, Data Center BU and Enterprise Strategic Initiatives, Equinix
  • Brandon Shields, MBA ’17, Product Group Lead, TD
  • Zena Stephens Joy, MBA ’17, Associate Director, Total Rewards, Fortra
