Embracing Diversity: The Benefits of Joining Consortium
Wednesday, February 15 | 12:15pm – 12:45pm
Progress requires embracing and embedding values of diversity, equity, and inclusion into the DNA of our community. One of the ways that we do this, is through our intentional partnerships with organizations that align with our efforts.
In this session, we will be highlighting our partnership with The Consortium.
The Consortium is a nonprofit organization that links top-tier students, MBA programs, and leading companies to advance representation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans in MBA programs and in global business management. Our School was one of three founding school members of The Consortium, a partnership in which we have managed to sustain since 1966.
You can apply to become a member of the organization, which has various advantages including the ability to apply to the Wisconsin MBA through The Consortium Common Application and be considered for a Consortium fellowship.
This session will provide a general overview of the organization, what the application process entails and various benefits of becoming a member.
