“Diversity Symposium is one of the best weekends at Johnson. It is an experience epitomizes what is great about the Johnson community. Celebrating inclusive excellence and meeting the amazing alums who came back to campus was equal parts inspiring, informative, and fun! Looking around the room at the sessions and dinner, I was pleasantly surprised to see just how many of my classmates are allies committed to working together towards diversity and inclusion. I see those who attended as leaders I can really count on.”

“With Johnson Means Business and the Diversity Symposium, you’re not just learning about the MBA program. You’re also seeing the Johnson community (current students, alumni, faculty, staff) in action, supporting and celebrating each other’s successes and stories.”
