Johnson hosts two major events, focusing on diversity in business and its MBA programs
The weekend of October 25-27, 2012 is shaping up to be a major showcase of diversity events at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management. Johnson Means Business, Johnson’s diverse prospective student hosting event, will take place Thursday and Friday, October 25 and 26, followed by the third annual Diversity Symposium on Saturday, on Saturday, October 27. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) will host 54 prospective MBAs during this weekend.
Johnson Means Business is jam-packed with events for diverse professionals interested in applying to Johnson. The weekend gives prospective students an opportunity to visit classes, interact with ODI and admissions staff, learn about career prospects, leadership and financial aid, and attend Sage Social with the Johnson community. Johnson Means Business has been instrumental in building Johnson’s credentials as one of the most diverse-friendly top business schools.
The Johnson Diversity Symposium is a platform for Cornell University graduate and undergraduate students to network with corporate professionals and engage in a dialogue on diversity in business. This year, Diversity Symposium will feature keynote addresses from JP Morgan Managing Director and Cornell Trustee Emerita Karen Keating ’76 and from Glenn Llopis, founder of the Center for Hispanic Leadership, in addition to a number of workshops, panels and receptions.
“Johnson Means Business and Diversity Symposium illustrate the importance of diversity in our community,” said Nsombi B. Ricketts, director of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) at Johnson. “We are thrilled to welcome so many diverse applicants to Cornell and Ithaca to learn, network, and further their careers.”
