The coronavirus outbreak required changing the annual West Coast Trek to a virtual trip this year. While I still wish that we had had the chance to visit the tech giants in San Francisco Bay Area during the spring break, the virtual West Coast Trek still gave me and my colleagues an opportunity to witness the spirits of rigor, courage and innovation that prevail in the field of technology and encouraged us to think about how we could leverage the skillsets we have to create value for businesses.

One of these is the Delta Air Lines Leadership Coaching Fellows program, where second-year MBA students receive training to become peer-coaches for first-year MBA students and MSBA students during the fall semester.
