MBA alumna Rachel Hurnyak discusses Stern's Ally Pledge and the importance of diversity and inclusion in EQ
— May 21, 2015
Excerpt from Clear Admit -- "...Stern this year expanded 'allyship'—a concept promoted within the LGBTQ community of inviting straight peers to serve as allies to LGBTQ community members—to be inclusive of all community members, a first among business schools. As part of Ally Week in April, a full 75 percent of the student body signed the Ally Pledge, promising to serve as allies to one another. 'The Ally Pledge historically has been LGBTQ-specific,' says Hurnyak. 'We changed it so that it includes all people and calls for a promise to respect everyone, making Stern a safe space for everyone.'"
