    Organizations

    MIT Sloan Women in Management

    MIT Sloan Women in Management is a student-led group that works with MIT and MIT Sloan alumni, faculty, staff, and the greater business community to increase opportunities for women and to advance the careers of current female students. SWIM’s mentorship program, which matches incoming students with second-year students, is designed to create a supportive community and a more enjoyable MIT Sloan experience. Mentors advise first-year students on all facets of business school, including class recommendations, career advice, and helping with cultural adjustment. The most anticipated student-run event is the MIT Sloan Women in Management conference, typically held in the spring.

    Forté Foundation

    As a sponsor of the Forté Foundation, MIT Sloan is committed to the advancement of women in leadership. MIT Sloan offers Forte Fellowships each year to outstanding female candidates who demonstrate leadership in their community, academic institution, or place of work. All female applicants are automatically considered for these awards. The MIT Sloan admissions team participates in Forté Forums each summer. 

    The MIT Sloan Admissions team partners with Forté Foundation for the MBALaunch program. This 10-month program pairs women seeking an MBA with a support network and provides a structured roadmap for applying to business schools.

    SWIM Conference

    Breaking the Mold was the initiative launched by MIT Sloan Women in Management aimed at starting a conversation about unconscious bias and developing approaches to manage these biases on the road towards equal opportunity for all. Through a series of events they spark discussion, reflection and action, with the goal of empowering each member of the community.  The conference is generally held in the spring.
