Latino Business Organization
BOLD is the premier community of Latino business professionals at UChicago. Our mission is to develop, motivate, and celebrate Latino students on campus interested in pursuing careers in business. Through workshops, faculty conversations, and networking events, we strive to introduce members to various business industries and prepare them for successful careers at top firms. Through our programming we hope to work against the stigma around business careers within the Latino community and create a robust professional and social network for Latinos.
The intersection of cultural affinity, shared professional endeavors, and the strive for excellence in face of challenge is at the heart of BOLD.
Excellence begins with the fundamentals. We aim to help members from all backgrounds develop their business acumen and professional skills necessary to step into the professional world.
Success comes from hard work. Our programs exist to push our members to reach their full potential and promote the drive to adapt and overcome adversity in an ever-changing world.
Community fosters growth. We draw from our shared heritage to build a safe space for our members to flourish professionally and personally. We strive to form a closeknit network of like-minded, supportive individuals.
We offer our members weekly workshops to increase awareness of diverse career options across different business sectors.
