MarketWatch reports on Johnson's commitment to its female MBA students

Johnson at Cornell University hosts events and initiatives that provide its female MBAs with the skills and guidance necessary to succeed


"Johnson Committed to Empowering Female MBA Students and Closing the Gender Gap in Business," (MarketWatch, Oct. 17):

According to a study conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women average $4,600 less than men at their initial post-MBA jobs, and the gap extends from that point forward. At the same time, the number of women pursuing MBAs is on the rise and it is especially critical now for business schools to address this gap and how to keep women interested in the MBA. Johnson at Cornell University is aggressively reviewing the ways it can increase the number of females it enrolls and also ways it can support its female students and alumnae. To this end, the school is featuring a number of female-specific events, initiatives and resources that foster development and success.

"Our program offerings are designed to give women the tools and resources necessary to achieve a successful career in business," said Nsombi B. Ricketts, director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Johnson.

"Women face specific challenges in the workplace, but the value they provide in all areas of the business world is critical so we must continue to grow their presence in this turbulent economy."

Johnson's Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) strives to recruit women and offers a variety of services to support women currently in the program and close the gender gap. The ODI works with companies seeking to recruit female students during their studies and upon graduation. In addition, Johnson's ODI also hosts a number of events geared for female MBAs including the Women's Power Lunch Series, and the upcoming annual Johnson Women in Business (JWIB) conference that will feature a keynote talk by Johnson alumna Jodi Glickman, MBA '02.

Glickman is herself an entrepreneur, author, public speaker, consultant and regular blogger for the Harvard Business Review and a contributor to Fortune.com and Business Insider.

"It is important now, more than ever before, to empower women and provide them with insight and guidance on how they can thrive in today's economy," said Glickman. "I feel privileged to be part of such a significant event and hope that my presence and personal story can make a difference in someone's life."
