Voices for Change
The Pepperdine Graziadio Business School Diversity Council (GDC) serves as a catalyst for advancing these core principles among our professional community and promoting a School-wide climate that honors and affirms the Council’s diversity and fosters an inclusive environment for innovation, respect, and equal voices among its members.
Graziadio Board Diversity Scholarship
At the Summer Meeting of the Graziadio Board, Dean Van Rensburg challenged the Graziadio Board to launch a new scholarship. Led by his own gift, Dean Van Rensburg emphasized to the Board that “diversity wins,” and that our school must match Los Angeles in terms of diversity. Board members responded en masse, creating the Graziadio Board Diversity Scholarship, which supports students from underrepresented backgrounds.
