CHICAGO, Sep. 15 /CSRwire/ - Today the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund, a Chicago-based family foundation, is proud to announce its 8th class of McGowan Fellows: students from top business schools across America who together form a robust community of young leaders dedicated to ethical practices and serious societal concerns.
Established in 2010, the McGowan Fellows Program annually recognizes ten second-year MBA students who demonstrate academic excellence and a commitment to ethical leadership, and provides full tuition for the students’ second year of business school. In collaboration with ten business school partners, the fellowship program honors the legacy of the pioneering entrepreneur William G. McGowan, who embodied the values of an ethical business leader.
The Fund welcomes its 8th class of inspirational young leaders with exceptional potential. Over the next year, they will work together on a social impact project tackling a challenge relating to insurance coverage for a preventive health program. Through this experience and others, the Fellows Program aims to provide the resources and guidance to young professionals to become ethical, accountable leaders and role models for generations to come.
The new class of Fellows will join alumni of the Program and the Board of Directors at the 8th Annual McGowan Symposium on Business Leadership & Ethics on November 3, 2017, at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor. Each year, the McGowan Symposium brings together students, professionals, and academia to discuss contemporary issues of leadership and ethics.
