B-Schooled Podcast Episode #116: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and the MBA

by Stacy Blackman Consulting, Sep 5, 2022

At SBC, we work with an increasing number of applicants interested in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion – either because they are personally passionate about these topics, see DEI as a possible post-MBA career path, or both. If you are interested in Diversity, Equity, and/or Inclusion, this is ABSOLUTELY the podcast for you. This episode includes all of the following (and more):

• Tips for DEI-focused applicants applying to MBA programs
• Suggestions about making the most of your MBA experience
• Thoughts on how best to advance DEI efforts after graduation

For this episode, host Chandler Arnold welcomes not one but two special guests: Julye Williams, founder of the Project 2043 Institute, and Keauna Mason, who has championed DEI efforts at Facebook/Meta, the Boston Consulting Group, and a range of other companies. We hope you enjoy this helpful and inspiring conversation.
