Northeastern University and the D’Amore-McKim School of Business value and celebrate the inclusion of all students, and we are proud of the work our graduate students are doing to promote the importance of diversity—whether it’s in the classroom, the workplace, or through clubs and organizations. In this dialogue, you will hear from D’Amore-McKim current students, recent alumni, and our admissions team as they give an inside look into diversity and inclusion on campus and the work our community is doing to bring awareness to Northeastern and beyond.

Participants in this event will…
  • Hear from D’Amore-McKim students and alumni from historically underrepresented groups about their experiences at Northeastern
  • Get an overview of the diversity and inclusion resources available to graduate students
  • Learn about student clubs and organizations that are working to make a difference on campus (You’re invited to participate!)
  • Find out more about the scholarship opportunities available
