This week, we joined Leonie Badger (@adwo_leo) and the Wharton Women in Business (@whartonwomeninbusiness) as they headed to Denver, Colorado for the Forte Foundation MBA Campus Leadership Summit. The Summit offered a diverse set of speakers including Deloitte who spoke about inclusive leadership and the six traits or characteristics of inclusive leaders and USC, whose 2020 Full-Time MBA class is the first* to achieve gender parity (52% women!). After sharing some highlights from the sessions there, we headed back to Wharton for some Q&A with Leonie and a look at life at Wharton. She shared her favorite class, how the MBA has supported her work as an entrepreneur, and what someone can expect as an MBA student at one of the top business schools in the world. Check out her takeover below!
Thanks so much to Leonie for hosting our latest #MBAchicTakeover and for giving us such a great inside look at a Forte Summit, and at life at Wharton!
