White House Imperative: Expanding Business School Opportunities for Women and Families

Friday | June 24 | 2016 | 1:00 pm - 2:15 PM

On August 5, 2015, the Council on Women and Girls and the Council of Economic Advisers hosted a summit of business school and industry leaders at the White House. Over 45 schools signed on to support best practices for encouraging success for women in business, and this was the beginning of a larger movement building momentum around key policies, goals, and initiatives. This GMAC session will present learnings from the summit, including attracting more women to GME, making programs more family friendly, and supporting women in their careers. It will feature two schools that have begun to elicit change internally – from pipeline development to curriculum design and delivery – in order to achieve these goals. The session will also outline AACSB’s role in supporting the best practices. You will leave the session with a clear understanding of what this movement means to GME in general and your role specifically, be it Admissions or Marketing, Program Delivery, or Career Services.
