Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will not only support the BA School Day Initiative started by Christina Lovelock and Adrian Reed in the United Kingdom (UK), but we will orchestrate participation of practicing Business Analysts from our areas in this inspiring effort.
This is your opportunity to inspire tomorrow's business analysts today! Bluegrass IIBA Chapter, Chrsitina and Adrian encourage you to visit a school of your choice to talk to students about a business analysis career. We wish to reach the younger generation before they are making decisions about their career to raise awareness of business analysis as a career choice. Many colleges and universities still do not offer a business analysis curriculum or degrees, so this may be the only way that students can learn of business analysis as a career option.
BA School Day encourages practicing business analysts to visit a school local to them to talk to students about a business analysis career during the week of Global Business Analysis Day (November 1st).
As mentioned, Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will help orchestrate BAs in Kentucky and our extended areas visiting schools local to them. We will run our effort from October 30, 2023 to November 10, 2023. If you wish to visit sometime outside of that date range, we can help arrange your visit. If you have a relationship with the school or school district and can arrange your own visit, by all means do that. Otherwise, Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will be happy to reach out to the school or school district for you. We have also developed additional resources that you may use as content for your discussion with the students. If you are interested in participating in the effort, please click on the image below to view our BA School Day webpage, review the resources, then make your pledge to visit a school the week of Global BA Day.
