Diversity Resources at Yale
The Yale School of Management offers a variety of resources to students from diverse backgrounds, including student clubs, the Student Government Standing Committee on Diversity, programs and events, and the newly formed Diversity Advisory Group, a student-led group that works with the dean and senior staff. In addition, Yale SOM students can draw upon resources from the broader Yale University community, which add to the student experience by providing an expanded network, administrative support, additional programming and events, and leadership opportunities.
Yale SOM students partner with many student clubs at other Yale graduate and professional schools and Yale College to create University-wide events. For example, Yale SOMís Black Business Alliance, the Black Graduate Network, and the Black Law Studentsí Association recently collaborated on a networking event held during the Harvard-Yale game weekend. The Jewish Students Association club partners with the Universityís Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale to honor the Jewish High Holy Days. Q+ Gay/Straight Alliance holds monthly social gatherings with Yale Law Schoolís Outlaws and the Women in Management and the South Asian Business Forum clubs partner with organizations at Yale College in creating their annual conferences.
The administration and student clubs at Yale SOM partner with offices around the university to provide a number of resources that benefit students. For instance, working with the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS), Yale SOMís Student and Academic Services staff and the International Club help international students and international exchange students through the student visa process and hold a number of workshops and social events to help international students get acquainted with the culture at Yale. The Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity (ODEO) at Yaleís Graduate School of Arts and Sciences will be partnering with Yale SOMís recently formed Diversity Advisory Group to provide selected students with training on the appropriate skills and resources needed to effectively serve as leaders of diversity within the student community. Yale SOM students actively participate in ODEOís workshops, trainings, and social events, which are open to all Yale graduate and professional schools.
