Helping During the Crisis

Knight Management Center - Students Interacting

Many of you have asked how you can help. Below are ways that alumni can make a difference now, and we will continue to add ideas as they come up.

Hire from the Stanford GSB Student Community

If you are hiring now, or expect to be soon, post the positions on our job board. The Career Management Center continues to work with students and alumni. If your own career is in flux, explore our virtual career resources.

Join Stanford GSB Connect (formerly the Mentoring Network)

Sign up to be a mentor to students or alumni, and help someone else weather these challenges.

Make a Gift to the School

If you’re able to contribute at this time, your gift will help the school’s leadership to respond to the current challenges. We particularly welcome your support in providing financial assistance to students pursuing summer job opportunities. The Business School Fund also is critical to the school as we redevelop and redesign and develop new virtual instruction methods, invest in innovative ways to build community for our students, and support faculty research.

Engage with Stanford Seed

Looking for ways to help during the COVID-19 pandemic? Support Stanford Seed entrepreneurs across Africa and India as they face significant challenges during this global crisis. Complete this form to register your interest. One opportunity to serve: volunteer as a Seed consultant. Hear one consultant’s story who helped an insurance company in Botswana implement a new performance management system.

Share Your Story

This situation has sparked us all to adjust to unique circumstances and challenges. Consider sharing what you are doing to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic in your business or organization. Email your stories, advice, or reflections so we can share them with fellow alumni and others who want to learn from your expertise.
