AmpEquity Speaker Series

In conversation with EGAL’s Kellie McElhaney, the AmpEquity Speaker Series amplifies the conversation around workplace equity. This series brings leaders from a variety of business sectors to share their perspectives on leadership, lessons learned, and strategies with the Haas community. This event is held 2-3 times during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Investing in Inclusion Pitch Competition

The Investing in Inclusion Pitch Competition creates a new avenue for business students and their teams to apply innovative problem-solving to issues of exclusion and marginalization. Ventures can innovate to create opportunity for all based on one (or intersections) of the following:

  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Gender and Gender Identity
  • Intellectual, Mental, or Physical Disability
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Age
  • Former Incarceration
  • SES (Socio-Economic Status)
Applications for the Spring 2020 competition will be available late Fall 2019.

Zendesk Case Competition

The Zendesk Case Competition allows Berkeley undergraduate students the opportunity to solve a real-world challenge that Zendesk is currently working on. This competition is held annually during the Fall semester.
