Gender at HBS: An Open Letter to the Harbus

We are three women from the Class of 2013 who are writing in response to the Harbus articles regarding the recent New York Times feature on gender at HBS.  We believe that, amidst the commentary prompted by the coverage, the Harbus conversation, led by the pieces “It will be OK,” and “A Response to Jodi Kantor,” have perhaps missed the…

Culture at HBS: A Response to Jodi Kantor

  The people for whom I have the most respect and admiration on this campus are not written about in The New York Times and are often not celebrated in graduation speeches.  What Ms. Kantor seemed to overlook in her recent piece about gender equality and culture at HBS is simple: the majority of people…

Raamin Noodles

Welcome to HBS, RCs! It’s fantastic to have a brand-new group of 900-odd students (as opposed to 900 odd students) who will neither understand the jokes ECs will be making at your expense nor, if my experience was any guide, even be exposed to ECs at all – until your old section decides to finally…
