MBA alumna shortlisted for top immigrant award
Congrats to Asper alumna Anu Baldner [MBA/12], who was recently shortlisted for the RBC Top 25 Canadian Immigrants award.
According to her nomination video, Baldner “believes that community service begins with a spirit of giving, and is deeply rooted in compassion and kindness.” Her goal is to open a global not-for-profit that works with victimized women.
Baldner, who was born in India, moved to Canada alone in 2010 to pursue an Asper MBA in human resource management. She’s the recipient of a 2015 Top 40 Under 40 award, an Award of Excellence from HRIA (the Human Resources Institute of Alberta), and a Women of Distinction award from the Lethbridge, Alberta YWCA, in honour of her community leadership.
Reflecting on the impact of her Asper MBA, Baldner says: “The program equipped me with the skills and the drive to make a difference to the community at large. The Asper School not only imparts best-in-class education in the field of human resources, but is also a place where professionals learn to be real leaders – leaders with the edge and the desire to create positive change wherever they go.”
The winners will be announced online in late June and be featured in the July print edition of Canadian Immigrant magazine.
