• Kellogg-Schulich Alumni Association Diversity and Inclusion Award

    The Kellogg-Schulich Alumni Association (KSAA) believes that diverse and inclusive environments in business and executive communities are essential for business success and for developing a stronger society. To this end, and to help advance opportunities for individuals from underrepresented groups to obtain and thrive in leadership positions, the KSAA has established the Kellogg-Schulich Alumni Association Diversity and Inclusion Award.

    Sponsored by the KSAA and supported by alumni and friends, the Kellogg-Schulich Alumni Association Diversity and Inclusion Award will be given annually to a Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA student who has made a meaningful impact on, and has shown a continued commitment to, the advancement of underrepresented groups, including Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, Women, Disabled, and 2SLGBTQ+ communities. The inaugural recipient will be announced in fall 2023.

    To provide this award in perpetuity, our goal is to raise $250,000. To make a contribution, click here.

    *Time Sensitive: All gifts, up to $10,000, will be matched, thanks to the generosity of Hyundai Canada, until April 30, 2023.
