Rachel Friedman Selected to Participate in Harvard Business School's Young American Leaders Program


Rachel Fried­man (BFA 92) has been selected to par­tic­i­pate in the Har­vard Busi­ness School Young Amer­i­can Lead­ers Pro­gram (YALP). The week­long inten­sive begins June 21st – June 25th where Rachel will rep­re­sent Colum­bus, OH as female busi­ness owner/​entrepreneur, cre­ative, and U‑M alumna.

The real­iza­tion that bet­ter cross-sec­tor col­lab­o­ra­tion would be key to gen­er­at­ing shared pros­per­ity in Amer­i­can cities sparked a Har­vard Busi­ness School (HBS) ini­tia­tive with an unlikely acronym: YALP. Launched in 2015 and con­ven­ing every June, YALP brings together ten lead­ers from each of four­teen cities across the coun­try, throw­ing them into a full-on, non­stop HBS expe­ri­ence, from case dis­cus­sions to speaker pre­sen­ta­tions to white­board ses­sions that ask par­tic­i­pants to col­lab­o­rate on solu­tions to a tar­get issue their city is facing.
