EVENTS

Business With Purpose

Wednesday, February 13th at 3 pm 
In January 2019 the energy conglomerate PG&E announced bankruptcy due to climate change while the world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock, has written its second annual letter to CEOs dedicated to the urgency of operating business with purpose. Environmental impact, social innovation and corporate governance around the globe will be a significant part of the challenges Gabelli graduate students will face as future leaders. The Gabelli ad campaign clearly indicates the program’s commitment to business with purpose. This event will be about how Gabelli prepares business leaders to face these challenges head-on.

Apply to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
 
DEI is a network of students who are committed to highlighting those aspects of student life experience that does not promote a collaborative and inclusive environment for students to thrive. We work closely with student organizations, Student life Deans and administrative staff to find solutions to some of these problems through systems thinking associative work. While it is important to highlight and celebrate the diversity in our student experiences, we believe that it is also important to maintain a fair and equitable distribution of student resources and ensure that these groups do not morph into discriminatory silos that hinder student collaboration and an inclusive community.

Apply for Financial Inclusion Practicum

The Financial Inclusion Practicum exists to explore, implement, and track innovative solutions that promote financial wellness for the underbanked and unbanked in New York City.

The Bronx contains a demographic marked by not only significant social 
capital, but also very limited financial resources. The harsh reality of the latter is accentuated by the current state of consumer banking. Traditional and popular consumer banks either do not provide bank account access, or do so at extreme cost to individuals with poor documentation or credit rating. These individuals are underbanked and unbanked; the underbanked prefer cash transactions instead of more traditional financial services while the unbanked do not have bank accounts at all.
