We strive to cultivate relationships with industry partners that are dedicated to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within business, specifically for underrepresented groups. We actively engage via memberships, panels, and participation in educational webinars and events. In the past, we’ve proudly served as sponsors for several annual conventions in this space, participating in panels and leading professional development presentations as part of programming. We are constantly working on new ways to connect and grow our presence, in our effort to broaden exposure, recruit, and develop top talent. We also aim to share opportunities around development and scholarships (for example) within these organizations, with our prospective and current students.
Key partners we continue to focus on include:
