THE DIRECTORS COLLEGE AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO SUPPORT BOARD DIVERSITY AND EMERGING LEADERS

The Directors College is pleased to announce the recipients of two scholarships that support efforts to enhance corporate governance in Canada and encourage fresh perspectives in the boardroom.

 

THE BOARD DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship, funded by the DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University, was open to candidates who identify themselves as coming from groups which are underrepresented on corporate Boards. These groups include but are not limited to: women; visible minorities; and Indigenous peoples.

  • Awarded to Michelle Stanford

 

THE COVID-19 IMPACT SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship, also funded by the DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University, was open to emerging leaders who could demonstrate that they and/or their organization experienced detrimental financial impact resulting from COVID-19 and therefore in a disadvantaged position when seeking director education.

  • Awarded to Brandon Day

 

The scholarships will be applied to the Chartered Director (C.Dir.) program in 2020.

 

“We are very pleased to award our scholarship to two individuals committed to learning to become more insightful and impactful business leaders and board members,” says Dave Mammoliti, Managing Director of The Directors College. “We believe they, and their organizations, will benefit from the competencies and confidence gained through our ‘gold standard’ governance education program”.
