Celebrating staff who support, lead and inspire with the 2022 Staff Recognition Awards

Posted by Faculty of Management on July 4, 2022 in Awards

In June, the Faculty of Management celebrated the fifth annual Staff Recognition Awards. The selection committee comprised members of the dean’s executive team and some of last year’s award winners. They had the difficult task of selecting just four of the outstanding staff members who provide support and leadership to their colleagues and students and make exceptional contributions to the Faculty.

The awards were presented by Anna Cranston (Assistant Dean) and Kim Brooks (Dean) at a hybrid virtual and in-person event.
