Michigan Ross Dean to Travel to White House This Week
On Wednesday, Michigan Ross Dean Alison Davis-Blake will attend a convening at the White House hosted by the White House Council on Women and Girls and the Council of Economic Advisers.
The convening will focus on opportunities for the business community and business schools to work together to adapt to the changing needs of the workforce by expanding opportunity for women in business. The convening will bring together leaders from the business and business school communities as well as other stakeholders for a conversation on recruiting, training, and retaining leaders for the 21st-century workplace and the importance of implementing policies that work for families.
Michigan Ross is a leader in advocating for the expansion of opportunity for women in business. The Michigan Ross faculty possesses the highest proportion of tenured or tenure track women among top ten business schools, according to Bloomberg Businessweek, and 40 percent for student clubs, organizations, and class sections are led by female students.
