Emory University and the Goizueta Business School have made a commitment to promoting diversity along ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, religious, national and international dimensions. The Goizueta Multicultural Organization (GMO) is a student and Undergraduate Office initiative to create an environment that allows diversity to flourish at the business school.
Alicia Sierra, the Goizueta Director of Diversity and Community Initiatives and Celeta Vanderpool, the Senior Associate Director of the BBA Program suggested starting this organization. GMO will create programs that teach students how to use their different perspectives as assets in the corporate world. We will expose them to opportunities available to minority students such as scholarships and job placement programs. Many major companies provide minority scholarships and desire diverse individuals to work in their organizations.
My personal goal for this organization is to have a lasting impact on our student body. Our club officially launched on March 25 with a mixer that was attended by BBAs, MBAs and professors. The support from the Goizueta community gave us a very positive indication that our club has a bright future at the business school. A Faculty Panel, featuring a diverse group of Goizueta professors was held on April 15 and we will host an international potluck at Farewell Kegs.
