Introducing the Chicago Booth Diversity and Inclusion Alumni Task Force
Alumni voices, participation, and dedication are key in building a more diverse and inclusive student and alumni community here at Chicago Booth. We have created an alumni volunteer task force uniquely positioned to help diversify our student outreach approach, strengthen more diverse alumni community engagement and visibility, and raise new funds for diversity and inclusion initiatives.
Members of the Diversity and Inclusion Alumni Task Force are divided into three distinct committees: the Admissions Committee, the Alumni Engagement Committee, and the Fundraising Committee. Below is a list of all committee members and a few of their testaments.
We are saddened by the loss of committee member Courtney Hall, ’03, in April 2021. He was a supportive member of the alumni community, committed to furthering the D&I conversation at Booth, and his presence will be missed.

Gayathri Rajan and Dean Madhav Rajan sponsored a challenge to find 500 donors to support Chicago Booth’s newly formed diversity and inclusion funds by fiscal year end. After just two months, we reached that 500-donor milestone, thereby successfully unlocking the Rajan's $100,000 gift! Inspired by those who had already risen to the challenge, the D&I Alumni Task Force fundraising committee sponsored another $30,000 to challenge 100 more donors by June 30, which was also successful.
