Office of Diversity & Inclusion 20th Anniversary Annual Alumni Newsletter

The Black Graduate Business Association’s mission is to support the Black students at Johnson in their goals to advance professionally, academically, socially, and mentally. BGBA has been up to a lot this year! We recently celebrated Black History Month with several events including our BHM kickoff Sage Social, a "Love Jones" happy hour for Valentine’s Day, movie night, and our inaugural Step Expo. We have also continued to host core class review sessions for BGBA and HABLA members. Next semester, we plan to hit the ground running through our continued engagement with Johnson’s annual Inclusion Summit and Johnson Means Business. We are excited that so many of our BGBA alumni loved the crewnecks that we had last year for our club ‘swag’. We are taking pre-orders now! If you are interested, follow this link for more information and to sign up. BGBA is always looking to having alumni join us for events. If you are open to being a speaker, host, or attend a BGBA event when you are in Ithaca, please let us know at!
