Schulich Places First at Reimagining Women in Leadership Competition
Schulich MBA students finished first at the Reimagining Women in Leadership competition, hosted by the Ted Rogers School of Management and sponsored by the Canadian Women’s Foundation. The winning team included Amy Rudnicki, Mara George, Niketa Saini and Niyati Rajkumar Choudhary.
This was a virtual event and included teams from all over the world. The case addressed the issue of gender-based violence, and particularly the alarming rise of this issue because of working from home. The students were challenged to create a training program for companies to support women facing this issue. The training was intended to raise awareness for the signs of gender-based violence, and to support organizations in developing the competencies to provide a trauma-informed response.
“Niketa, Mara, Niyati and I worked incredibly well together and thanks to the training provided by our coach Joe Fayt, we were able to identify our strengths early on to ensure we could leverage them together to successfully develop a training program to support women impacted by gender-based violence,” said Amy Rudnicki (MBA Candidate ’23). “We were very grateful to have been supported by many professionals, including Instructor of P&P and Chair of Human Rights Legal Support Centre, Ena Chadha and Schulich alumni Azra Samji, who helped our team understand the impact of gender-based violence through different perspectives.”
