Wharton Graduate 1Gen Club
Cultivate Community. Build Allyship. Mentor Others.
The Wharton Graduate 1Gen Club aims to cultivate community amongst Wharton MBA students who share the invisible first-generation low-income (FGLI) backgrounds.
Wharton 1Gen also aims to develop allyship programming that has far-reaching impact in business and education access for socioeconomically disadvantaged students and young professionals.
We bring together FGLI and non-FGLI business school students to engage in discussions around class privilege and socioeconomic inequality, in order to create stronger and more effective FGLI advocates amongst the next generation of business leaders.
