Question:

What has the candidate done pre-MBA in their business, personal or academic life to demonstrate commitment to reducing the serious underrepresentation of African American, Hispanic American or Native Americans in business school enrollment or the ranks of management?

What potential does the candidate demonstrate for assisting The Consortium in pursuing its mission post-MBA?

As a Volunteer Coordinator at XXXX for nearly two years, I have observed that Rehana is excellent at building cross-cultural relationships and serves as a strong and compassionate representation of women of color in management. She has moved up at from a temp, to executive assistant, to Human Resources and always demonstrates dedication to the mission of the organization.

Rehana has a unique dedication to mentoring, with a personal investment that is not evident in every mentor. Since 2011, she has been mentoring a young African-American woman through the XXX Youth leadership program. She assists her mentee with homework and guides her through College application. I have always found Rehana to be extremely diligent and dedicated. Her sense of personal responsibility, interpersonal skills, and business knowledge will enable her to promote equality and achievement across all racial and ethnic groups. Rehana has expressed and demonstrated that she feels a strong commitment to supporting other women of color and serving as an example of excellence in her field. I strongly believe that post MBA, she will continue to pursue Consortium’s mission to enhance presentation of African American population and thus prove to be an excellent asset to The Consortium.
