Berkeley-Haas Diversity Workshop

Diversity Workshop

Each fall, Berkeley-Haas hosts a Diversity Workshop to showcase the incredible diversity of our students and alumni. Last year we welcomed over 200 prospective students to campus for a day of networking, diversity panels, interactive workshops and presentations by both admissions and career management staff. Watch a video of Keynote Speaker Monica Stevens, MBA '96 and Wells Fargo executive.

The Fall 2015 Workshop will be held on Saturday, September 19 at the Haas School of Business from approximately 8:00AM to 5:00PM. Event registration and agenda will be available in early July.
