According to a school, Ms Zahrai stood out during the selection process due to a combination of her outstanding academic and work history and her previous awards and recognition, including the ‘Women of Influence’ award presented to Ms Zahrai by Westpac in 2016, and additionally her achievements promoting equity and social justice.
“Like the Future Business Council, Monash Business School is committed to addressing future challenges for businesses in Australia and globally,” said Monash Business School Deputy Dean, Leadership, and Executive Education Professor Richard Hall.
FBC and MBS stated they are both confident that Ms Zahrai will use the opportunity to develop her leadership potential to contribute positively to the FBC board and advance the organisation’s mission within the business community.
The Scholarship is a key component of the strong working partnership between MBS and the FBC, jointly fostering the advancement of Australian society through strong sustainable and ethical business.
FBC said it was looking forward to working with Shade Zahrai and continuing its shared commitment to next generation business with the Monash Business School.
