The conference provides a rare networking and information-gathering opportunity to diverse students interested in pursuing a business Ph.D. 
Dr. Conde looks to support the Project’s mission, saying, “As a Ph.D. Project member. My goal is to encourage those from underrepresented communities to consider a Ph.D. and life in academia.”
