On Wednesday March 6, 2019, A Better Chance Alumni met for a Discussion with Ursula Burns, celebrated CEO and former Obama STEM appointee, hosted by the Moody's Diversity Council and Women's History Month Committee. Attendees also had a chance to network with Moody's employees ahead of an upcoming internship opportunity.
A Better Chance boasts nearly 17,000 trailblazing Alumni nationwide.
Our Alumni are leaders in a variety of sectors from business, finance, education, healthcare, the arts and beyond. They represent the mission of A Better Chance and for that we are proud to call them our own.
There are many milestone stops along the Alumni journey. From college, to first jobs, first homes, promotions, family celebrations and more. A Better Chance wants to stay in the know with our Alumni and learn what great things they are doing every step of the way.
In the last ten years, A Better Chance has made a concentrated effort to develop our Alumni offerings. Most recently, we were the recipient of a $500,000 Boeing grant specifically for Alumni engagement initiatives. It is an exciting time to come back, attend an event, volunteer, meet the Scholars of today and learn more about A Better Chance.

A Better Chance Alumni and Scholars asked questions that will help them blaze their own path to a successful and meaningful career!
