Cornell Diversity & Inclusion Business Advisory Program Kicks Off 8-Week Session with Workshop “Business Basics”

On Oct. 2, the Cornell Diversity and Inclusion Business Advisory Program kicked off an eight-week workshop series with an hour-long session titled “Business Basics” with Forté, a female-only undergraduate business organization, and the Wardrobe, an organization that provides free professional attire to Cornell students. Founded in April 2019 by Claire Pan ’20, the program is funded by Dyson’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion and consists of over 45 business organizations on campus. The event opened with a resume workshop led by two Forté members, Maddie Franke ’21, vice president of external affairs and Rabia Syed ’21, initiative representative. They shared a collection of tips for constructing resumes, writing cover letters, networking and navigating LinkedIn.

Jennifer Majka was recently announced as the founding Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management and the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business.
