Why Invite Speakers?

In addition to learning by doing, our philosophy is that learning from experienced industry professionals can be a great teacher. Every semester, we invite talented individuals who have made big impacts in the alternatives industry to share their knowledge and wisdom with YAI. 

After YAI holds these speaker events for the broader Yale community, members have the opportunity to attend private discussions and Q&A sessions with speakers.  We think of this as a great way to broaden members' networks. Whether in breakout rooms or in a room at Mory's, these are the Yale experiences that will be unforgettable.
