Ambassador Spotlight

The mission of the Wond’ry at its very core lies in the way we foster innovation in all fields and act as a catalyst for building and strengthening creativity across campus. While students are provided the resources and opportunities to form new insights for becoming
agents of innovation in today’s workforce, it is imperative that such discovery and learning are unleashed in an inclusive environment. Being knowledgeable about the unique ways in which different groups of people relate, communicate, engage in conflict, conduct business and organize themselves is the first step to developing the cultural competency required to harbor that inclusivity.

In order to promote this fundamental need for inclusion, the Wond’ry is excited to launch The Heritage Months Project beginning in the new year. January will be a month of honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.- an activist, pastor and humanitarian among various other titles- who forefronted the nonviolent struggle for racial equality in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement. To perpetuate his mission to achieve social change, we are highlighting racial and social justice innovators, as our inaugural piece to the series, in order to expand upon the ways in which diversity and culture invigorate business, and the world at large, with dynamism and creativity.

We encourage you to follow and connect with these individuals via social media to gain some wisdom and insight into what it truly means to establish durable, meaningful relationships with diverse counterparts.
