I wanted to make you aware of a great opportunity to experience first-hand the culture and community at MIT Sloan: Diversity Weekend. Diversity Weekend is open to prospective candidates who are interested in learning more about the inclusive environment at MIT Sloan. The two-day event is Thursday-Friday, October 2-3. Attendees will learn more about the campus, community, mentorship opportunities, admissions tips, and more. They will hear from Admissions representatives, students and faculty. It is an event not to be missed. Read the latest news story for more details on Diversity weekend mitsloan.mit.edu/newsroom/2014-diversity-weekend.php

Denise Bailey-Castro ‘15, a current MBA/HKS dual-degree student has shared her thoughts on Diversity Weekend: “Diversity Day was the perfect introduction to life at MIT Sloan! The students were so welcoming, and the warm and inviting nature of the school confirmed everything I had heard about MIT Sloan. It only took a few hours on campus, with students, and in classes for me to know that MIT Sloan was a special place – and more importantly, the place for me to get a MBA. The fact that Sloan works so hard to put this special event together and that it has such high visibility with faculty, staff, and administration was evidence to me that MIT Sloan truly values diversity and makes an active effort to embrace it.” To hear more from Denise, watch this video interview http://youtu.be/DYkBCgRGyXo
