Leeds Through the Eyes of a Changemaker

Meet Hannah, a second-year MBA studying organizational change management at Leeds School of Business. She describes her decision to attend Leeds as “the best investment I ever made in myself.”

Hannah recently received the Rebecca Adamson Indigenous Rights & Business Scholarship. “I want to use my degree to remove cross-cultural barriers and make positive impact to those who need their voices heard,” says Hannah.

Another population that needs its voice heard, according to Hannah, is women in business. She uses her role as president of the MBA Women in Business club to foster unity. “I feel that as a woman, I have a responsibility to uplift and empower the women around me. If we nurture a supportive community of women in the MBA program, we are more likely to support one another post-graduation.”

The tight-knit community of students and faculty at Leeds has been a revelation to Hannah, who describes it as “extremely interpersonal and forward-thinking.” Likewise, she’s discovered that the broader Boulder business community is actively invested in Leeds students.

Looking ahead, Hannah plans to take what she learned as an intern at Charles Schwab in San Francisco and work in the organizational change management field, while serving her community.
