ODI sponsored several on campus events to support Johnson students last month.  During FT MBA Orientation, we hosted Frans Johansson to discuss how diversity drives innovation in teams and CSW Global Associates for Diversity Interactive Theater with Johnson students, faculty and staff.  On August 25th we had our 2nd annual pre-diversity conference workshop with the Career Management Center and NSHMBA Rochester NY Chapter.  ODI also hosted welcome meetings with our Consortium and Forte Fellows on August 27th and 28th

As September begins, ODI heads back on the road for recruiting travel.  Sonia Rucker and I will team up for the NYC Forte Forums at Citi on Sept 4th & 5th, as well as the NYC Consortium MAPS at Credit Suisse on Sept 6th.  Then I travel to Chicago on Sept 11th, Philly on Sept 19th and Boston on Sept 20th to meet prospective students at additional Consortium MAPS events.  Applications to attend JMB will be open until Sept 24th and the deadline for JWIB applications is October 8th- so please encourage prospective MBAs in your networks to submit their applications soon.

Lastly, I currently serve as member of GMAC’s Diversity Advisory Group and was recently featured in a Diversity Net video on GMAC.com to discuss how diversity enriches the MBA experience.

Until next time,
