Hey everyone,

I got a question. I saw a great event on admission website Fall Prospective Student Diversity Day II. I hope I get to know a lot of people through this event.

However, one single problem: this event seems to target minority people. Quote from the website: "Jointly sponsored by HBS MBA Admissions, the African-American Student Union (AASU), the Latino Student Organization (LASO), and the Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), Prospective Student Diversity Day (PSDD) is an opportunity for members of these communities to experience Harvard Business School. "

I'm not part of any communities mentioned above. Should I still go?

Thanks in advance for your help and good luck with the application!

It wouldn't be appropriate.

If the event explicitly states that it is specifically targeted towards a certain group (be it a minority group, senior college students (2+2) or military veterans), you won't be doing yourself any favours if you disregard that messaging and attend anyway.

Thank you, Judy! I had the same concern but I just wanted to confirm.

I've withdrawn my RSVP.

I have been to diversity events for Wharton, Yale, Sloan, Ross, and many other top programs and there are always individuals from majority demographics there. It's targeted for diverse populations but still inclusive to those who aren't. I've even seen men at women's recruitment events. Some might find it inappropriate, but I guess on the flipside you could be trying to convey your support as an ally. If you're passionate about URM enrollment in top business programs, then attend. If not (you're just attending for your own self gain), then maybe visit on another occasion.

Best of luck with your apps!
