We are proud to announce that Steven Avila, an MBA student at New York University, has won our 2017 DiversityJobs Scholarship award. He pursues his MBA because he is interested in learning about the connections between increased automation of our industries and protecting the American worker, closing the gender gap when it comes to both pay and benefits, raising pay and living standards for American workers, and modeling business practices for the rest of the world.
Steven’s transparency, intelligence, and obvious drive will no doubt allow him to succeed as a business professional.
The seven finalists – Steven Avila, Jamy Malone, Libbie Miller, Homira Omar, Nimah Gobir, Cindy Chung and Chetan Bafna – were selected from hundreds of other applicants for their dedication to learning, desire to make a positive impact on the world, and conviction to succeed as professionals. Choosing one winner was an incredibly difficult decision considering the exceptional student applicants and quality of their essays.
We want to thank our site visitors and all who voted to help us select a winner. The support shown through positive comments left for these students affirms both their career paths and the wonderful impact they already have on the lives of others.
