Annual Diversity Awards
The corporate Diversity Award was given to Nationwide Insurance Corp. and Abbott Nutrition manager, Kamran Jamell, received the Individual Diversity Award this year. Fisher’s ninth annual Diversity Awards Program was held on Tuesday, June 1 at the Blackwell. Jamell, who was active with Fisher’s Hispanic Student Business Association since 2008, was instrumental facilitating Abbott Nutrition’s sponsorship for the organization’s activities, including the Soccer Classic.
During the 2009-10 school year, Nationwide Insurance “affinity groups” have reached out and networked with students from Fisher minority student groups. Nationwide’s Sisi Wu accepted the award on behalf of the company. The awards program was organized by the Office of Minority Student Services and leaders from the 12 student organizations that serve diverse populations in the Fisher community.
