Unlocking Connections and Opportunities for a Lifetime

Whether you’re a recent grad, or further along in your career, alumni all have something in common: a desire to connect and help each other. Unique job opportunities, career support, a chance to mentor or seek mentorship, and countless resources are all available to you here, in one place. The best way to stay connected with other fellows is to keep your profile in Hello Fellow up to date and active.

Join The Consortium Alumni Network

We are always looking for enthusiastic and engaged alumni to help us build a stronger alumni community—and to help our current students succeed. Here are some of the ways to get involved:

Special Interest & Regional Groups

The Consortium Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide students and alumni, alike, an inherent community to discuss, read and learn more about specific industries. Additionally, our network can stay in touch with others in their geographical area by joining a Regional Group.

Constant Updates

The Consortium’s blog will bring you up to date with the latest issues facing underrepresented populations in the workplace. You will also receive news about other topics such as business, innovation, The Consortium community and more.

Support The Consortium

Your Annual Fund gifts are a major funding source for our fellowships, and we thank you for your ongoing support. Help us increase the numbers of underrepresented populations in American business.

Volunteer

Frequently, alumni reach out to The Consortium to “pay forward” their experiences, namely through volunteerism. Frankly, we would not be able to deliver all of the world-class services and events without assistance. There are a few ways in which you can get involved.

Alumni Business Directory

One way we strive to support our alumni who are also small business owners and entrepreneurs is through our Alumni Business Directory. If you are an alumnus of The Consortium, own your own business and would like to be included in the next iteration of the directory, please contact Adrienne Thomas, Sr. Manager, Student & Alumni Relations, at thomasa@cgsm.org.

We know there are many entrepreneurs within our ranks. Bi-annually, we create and publish an Alumni Business Directory for alumni to showcase their goods and services within the CGSM community. If you have an independently owned and operated company you want included in the directory, submit your business profile here.
