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.

Top business schools have had high-profile gender problems and have high price tags that can scare away low-income applicants. That’s partially why B-schools go across the country and world to try to achieve more diverse pools of students. This week, a slew of admissions events are aimed at women, veterans, and minorities, and an annual conference in Los Angeles pairs admissions directors with multicultural candidates.
