The University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler has partnered with Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), the nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the leadership pipeline in the U.S.
MLT equips students from underrepresented communities – Black, Latinx and Native American – with skills training, career coaching and professional networking to complement their MBA experience and enhance access to top career opportunities.
“Working with MLT will strengthen our recruitment of students from underrepresented communities and, ultimately, prepare them to lead and thrive in throughout their careers,” said Danielle Richie, senior associate director of MBA admissions and student recruitment for the Full-Time MBA Program at UNC Kenan-Flagler.
UNC Kenan-Flagler’s premier business school partnership will help more prospective and incoming Full-Time MBA students access MLT’s personalized career preparation resources as well as corporate recruiters to prepare them for high-impact leadership positions and to advocate for underrepresented communities.
MLT’s guiding principles include a commitment to partner with organizations that embrace diversity, inclusion and belonging, and do not discriminate in hiring, professional development, or promotion practices based on race, ethnicity, social background, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, or national origin.
“MLT partners with businesses and organizations that are empowering the next generation of leaders, and it is imperative that we continue to learn and grow stronger as a community,” said Richie. “We welcome MLT’s strategic counsel and insights about the ways we can improve. Inclusion is reflected among our core values at UNC Kenan-Flagler, and we’re deeply committed to ensuring Black, Latinx and Native American students find a sense of belonging and have access to important coaching, networking and career resources to reach their potential.”
