Corp! Magazine honors EMU President Sue Martin for efforts in diversity
YPSILANTI —Eastern Michigan University President Susan Martin will be recognized as a diversity business leader by Corp! Magazine at a ceremony Oct. 14 at the Troy Marriott (200 W. Big Beaver Road). The event begins at 7:30 a.m.
“The diversity of the campus is one of the reasons I was interested in coming to Eastern Michigan University,” said Martin. “EMU is representative of the positive impact diversity can have in expanding the education of students outside of the classroom. I am proud to be a part of that.”
“As we all know, diversity is practiced at many levels, including race, gender, ethnicity, multiculturalism and more. This issue and awards program is a celebration of Michigan’s diverse communities and businesses, which strengthens our state and is a source of pride for all of us,” said Corp! Publisher Jennifer Kluge.
Diversity award winners were selected in three categories: diversity focused company, diversity champion and diversity business leader.
Diversity business leader is defined by Corp! Magazine as an individual who is a diversity role model or top officer of a minority-owned business.
The 56 diversity award recipients will be profiled in the magazine’s Salute to Diversity issue.
The event is open to the public. Tickets are $40 per person. For more information, visit http://www.corpmagazine.com
