THP is Pleased to Announce Its President, Melissa Marr, Has Been Given The Distinguished Alumna Award By Columbia Women in Business
Melissa Marr, CBS ’02 (EMBA), President, The Healing Project, was presented with Twelfth Annual Distinguished Alumna Award by Columbia Women in Business (CWIB). The award ceremony was opened with remarks by Dean R. Glenn Hubbarb, Russell Carson Professor of Finance, Columbia University, Graduate School of Business. Following the ceremony, Melissa spoke to a sold-out audience of Columbia Business School students, faculty, administrators and alumnae about finding success on one's own terms. She concluded her presentation with an original short film that offered various perspectives on the meaning of success from the viewpoints of women representing a range of careers in the arts, film, media, finance, education and medicine.
Anyone who knows our president is aware of the diverse and radical career choices she has made over the years moving between the arts, film, technology and the not-for-profit sectors. She is a woman who has enjoyed considerable distinction while charting her own course. The presentation was made at The 15th Annual CWIB Conference held February 22, 2008 at Lerner Hall, Columbia University.
Our directors, scientific advisers, volunteers, staff and supporters are elated that Melissa's vision, drive, management skill and dynamic leadership has been recognized by such an illustrious organization as the CWIB and such a distingiushed institution as Columbia University.
Well done, Melissa.
The Healing Project would like to thank Dean Hubbarb, Columbia University, Columbia Business School and the CWIB for being such gracious hosts.
