2022 is the year to redefine DEI.

From hybrid work to the launch of the metaverse, organizations have been forced to rethink and redefine their diversity, inclusion, and equity commitments and move beyond buzzwords.

Taking place on April 9, Move Beyond the Buzzwords, a DEI Summit, will strive to answer:

“As an MBA student, how can I help advance diversity, equity, and inclusion—in my life and at my future organization?”

Student leaders from six business schools are proud to present this annual MBA summit on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Guiding Principles

Featuring panels, workshops, networking sessions, and powerful keynotes, each day will be broken down into three guiding principles:


What is the business case for DEI? How can individuals and organizations intentionally increase awareness of biases? How does the intersectionality of identities play out?

How can we be more effective as allies and not just bystanders? What roles do individuals in society and as employees play in building a culture of allyship and community? 


What actions can we take to influence change? How can individuals and organizations align their missions to their DEI agendas?
