By Jessica Pawlarczyk What does the Kellogg MBA experience look like for women? What type of personal and professional support does Kellogg offer its female students? How does Kellogg prepare women to become successful business leaders? Close to 200 prospective students explored these crucial questions during Women’s Preview Day, an admissions event that gives women… Continue reading
By Jessica Pawlarczyk On Saturday, October 29, the Kellogg Black Management Association (BMA) will hold its 30th annual BMA Conference to discuss the power of diversity though the lens of business.

By Melissa Rapp We are thrilled to welcome the Class of 2018, a dynamic group of students who share a record of high achievement, strong leadership and intellectual merit.
At Kellogg, we have a steadfast commitment to diversity and inclusion. One of the many ways we showcase this commitment is through student organizations such as Pride@Kellogg (P@K).
From May 2-6, Pride@Kellogg (P@K) hosted the second annual LGBT Ally Week with the aim of celebrating diversity and raising awareness of LGBT issues and rights. The week featured 10 different social and speaker events targeting different members of the Kellogg audience, with topics ranging from LGBT individuals in sports to tips for being a… Continue reading
By Libby Koerbel Engaging a room of more than 100 people for two straight hours is no easy task, but the Women’s Business Association (WBA), Professor Victoria Medvec, Dean Sally Blount and an all-star panel of three female alumnae pulled it off. One of the panelists summed it up perfectly afterward when she said, “I… Continue reading
As co-chairs of Kellogg’s Black Management Association Conference, our vision was to perpetuate the long-standing tradition and strength of the longest-running conference at Kellogg. It was our distinct goal to create a worthwhile conference that was forward thinking, would attract a diverse audience and would leave them inspired to be better leaders.
Understanding the importance of peer leadership, we set out to select a committed, highly motivated team that would help us fulfill this vision. From the planning phase to the day of the conference, we learned a tremendous amount through co-chairing such a significant event.
Roslyn Brock ’99 is the youngest person in history to be named a Chairman of the NAACP. She’s also the first female Chairman. You won’t catch Brock resting on her laurels, though. Instead, she is focused on the work still ahead. “More than fifty years after the modern civil rights movement, race still matters in… Continue reading
It’s a statistic that has floated around since orientation and pre-term, but I think it bears repeating: the Kellogg class of 2017 has a record percentage of female students, and at 43% of an incoming class of 492, those students are poised to make a big impact. I had a chance to feel this impact quite viscerally when I walked into the Allen Center a few weeks ago for the first annual Women’s Welcome Event hosted by the Women’s Business Association (WBA).
We are thrilled to welcome the Class of 2017 to campus today, and data from the incoming class of students indicates that Kellogg’s community is about to reach a new level of diversity and intellectual merit.
Within the Class of 2017, a record-breaking 43 percent of students are women — representing a 5 percent increase over last year (and a significant change from the 29% women when I was at Kellogg in 2003!). This class includes representation from more than 50 different citizenships and cultural backgrounds. At the same time, the average GMAT score of incoming students was 724, an all-time high. From all angles, this is a stellar class!
Winning the Wake Forest University Marketing Analytics Summit was an amazing experience. Looking back there are three things I believe my team did well that enabled us to succeed.
To celebrate Kellogg MOSAIC week, the photography club arranged a photo contest during spring break focused on the theme, “Embracing Differences.” How Kellogg embraces its diversity and how its students immerse themselves in different cultures and places around the world inspired the theme.
This was the second year the club hosted the contest. We were looking forward to seeing the photos from everyone’s spring break experiences.
We divided the contest into two categories: DSLR submissions and Instagram photos with the hashtag “#KelloggMOSAIC.” We also added in another category for students who went on Global Immersion in Management (GIM) trips.
For this year, we were very fortunate to have great judges on board – Professor Julie Hennessy from Kellogg’s Marketing Department, Professor Zach Wise (a former award-winning interactive producer at The New York Times) from the Medill School of Journalism, Global Programs Associate Director Deborah Kraus and current student Jenni Yi ‘16. Each judge was selected to provide their insights on the pictures’ content, photography and diversity.
