What does Black History Month mean to you?
To me, Black History Month is a time to reflect on our past, our present, our future. Reflect on the past sacrifices and achievements that our ancestors made to pave the way for us. Reflecting on our present efforts to build on the foundation our ancestors created for us to continue to learn, grow and prosper as a culture. And lastly, reflection of the hope for a truly better and brighter future for the next generations of African Americans.
Mauri Schoby was nominated by Earl Shipp, Board Member of National Grid, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company, and Olin Corporation.
Shipp's reflections: I’ve never seen a better people oriented leader. This was always recognized by her leadership. Her work with NSBE over the years had by far the largest impact on Diversity and Inclusion of any effort in the 100 year history of Dow. The program she helped develop and lead, brought hundreds of African American professionals into the company. Additionally, her template was adopted in Dow S.W.E., SHPE, and Black MBA recruitment efforts - with equal success. They say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!
