B-Schooled Podcast Episode #116: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and the MBA


At SBC, we work with an increasing number of applicants interested in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion – either because they are personally passionate about these topics, see DEI as a possible post-MBA career path, or both. If you are interested in Diversity, Equity, and/or Inclusion, this is ABSOLUTELY the podcast for you. This episode includes all of the following (and more):

• Tips for DEI-focused applicants applying to MBA programs
• Suggestions about making the most of your MBA experience
• Thoughts on how best to advance DEI efforts after graduation

For this episode, host Chandler Arnold welcomes not one but two special guests: Julye Williams, founder of the Project 2043 Institute, and Keauna Mason, who has championed DEI efforts at Facebook/Meta, the Boston Consulting Group, and a range of other companies. We hope you enjoy this helpful and inspiring conversation.
