Programs & Events

To help build community and drive change, Babson students, staff, and faculty plan educational events that celebrate and support diverse identities as well as provide space for challenging conversations. This is another way that entrepreneurial leadership helps build strong communities.

The things we do individually tend to cause a ripple effect in the world around us, so if we take the time to more thoroughly understand people before making assumptions about what they are or aren’t, it creates the opportunity for everyone to have a seat at the table.
