Each week, we round up the talks, conferences, information sessions, and alumni events at top business schools in the U.S. and around the world.

B-schools have tried to close the gender gap in recent years, with varying degrees of success. You can see some of those efforts in action over the next week, as MBA programs hold events to woo women. Organizations devoted to alumni professionals and Jesuit business schools will also hold annual meetings this week.
