The Outreach Committee has a two-fold purpose: (1) provide Chapter members with a wide array of community service opportunities and (2) increase the presence of Black MBA volunteer participation in the non-profit sector. Our agenda ranges from giving our time and energy to donating canned goods. We seek team members who have a passion for helping people and their community and who enjoy a high level of personal satisfaction from making a difference.

The Partnerships Committee serves as the development team for the Chicago Chapter. The committee is responsible for identifying, developing, and cultivating relationships with top corporations in Chicago. The objective of the partnerships committee is to transform these corporate relationships into corporate partners that directly fund or contribute in-kind to the Chicago Chapter’s activities in exchange for access to our members through our five channels: education, career, leadership, entrepreneurship, and lifestyles. Our corporate partners are instrumental to our organization on both a local and national level. Corporate partners host and underwrite events (e.g., Chapter Programming, and Annual Conference) as well as provide scholarships to minority students throughout the year while increasing their business’ returns through access to diverse leadership talent.
