Wharton Sponsors Diversity and Leadership Conference

Diversity is critical to the success of our programs at the Wharton school.  Diversity of our student body and diversity of our academic curriculum enhance the learning environment, creating greater student engagement where each individual has an opportunity to contribute and thrive.

We recognize that growing our diversity requires continued investment.  To that end, the Wharton EMBA program in San Francisco is sponsoring a series of events and initiatives to expand our recruitment efforts and to provide our students and alumni an opportunity to learn more about the diversity of our communities.

This year, we are proud to sponsor the opening reception for the California Diversity and Leadership Conference on September 19, 2007 in San Francisco.  This year’s conference aims to provide a platform for dialogue on inclusion and diversity-related issues that impact the state.  Participants will have the opportunity to learn and share best practices and strategies, and formulate integrated diversity initiatives that link business goals to workplace, marketplace, and community diversity objectives.

The California Diversity and Leadership Conference is providing Wharton students and alumni a reduced conference rate of $299.  If you are interested in attending the conference and want to take advantage of the special Wharton rate, please contact  mbaexecwest-admissions@wharton.upenn.edu.
