Canaccord Genuity Diversity Award of Excellence

The Canaccord Genuity Diversity Award of Excellence was created to benefit BBA/iBBA and MBA students at the Schulich School of Business. Canaccord Genuity (CG) and all of its affiliates aim to create a workplace where diversity is encouraged and in which all employees have the opportunity to realize their potential for excellence. To create economic opportunities in the Black community and to encourage a more equitable future, CG has established a well-rounded awards program that will unlock the full potential of Black students pursuing a career in capital markets/wealth management. The Award will be given annually to one (1) third-year Black BBA/iBBA student and to one (1) incoming Black MBA student who demonstrate both academic excellence (minimum GPA of B+) and an interest in capital markets/wealth management. The recipients will demonstrate exemplary leadership and interpersonal skills, as well as strong experience in community-building. Unique to this awards program is the immediate investment of an optional continuous CG mentorship throughout the year and an opportunity to interview for a summer internship. Applicants to the Award will be required to submit a detailed resume highlighting their leadership/community experience and passion for capital markets/wealth management. The following individuals shall not be eligible for the Award: 1. Any director, officer or employee of Canaccord Genuity Corp. or its affiliates (?Canaccord Genuity Employee?); and 2. Any relative (spouse, sibling, child, parent, grandchild or grandparent) of a Canaccord Genuity Employee. Value: $10,000 per student.
