Chicago Booth Alumni Relations would like to thank Brigitte Anderson, ’08, and Alandrea Timmons, ’08, for their efforts to organize the Black alumni community. Since 2017, they have given countless volunteer hours to meetings, emails, town halls, planning the annual brunch, networking at social events, developing virtual programming, and providing input and feedback to us as our partners. We are grateful they will continue as advisors throughout the leadership transition and remain Chicago Booth ambassadors.
