You can control how much of your personal information other alumni can view but all of your personal information on the website can be seen by the website’s administrators. More information about how your data is used is available in the website’s Alumni Privacy Notice.
Where does my profile appear?
Your profile appears in the Directory section of this alumni network website, which is only visible to and searchable by verified alumni members of this network and authorized BlackRock personnel. Keep in mind that you can select to hide your contact information from other members.
How do I contact another alum directly?
You may click on an alum’s profile and find their contact information. If the profile does not have contact information, it means the alum has chosen to make their contact information hidden.
