Scheller College Hosts MLT Summer Series

The Scheller College of Business has been selected to host the
2017 Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) Summer Series, June 16 - 18, 2017.

MLT is a national non-profit dedicated to empowering African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans with skills, coaching and connections needed to lead organizations and communities worldwide. Scheller College’s new partnership with MLT allows us to amplify the College’s long-standing commitment to recruiting, supporting, and advancing women and professionals of color across all of its programs.

With your support, and the help of its partner schools, through leadership forums like this, MLT is addressing the issues surrounding the lack of minority representation in leadership positions and the pipeline to the C-suite.

Diversity in all of its forms is one of Georgia Tech's greatest strengths. We are committed to creating a culture of 'inclusive excellence' at the Scheller College where all individuals feel invested and engaged in our business school’s mission.

Dean and Stephen P. Zelnak Jr. Chair, Professor, Information Technology Management
