President Gloria Nemerowicz received the Arnold Z. Rosoff Award for outstanding individual achievement in promoting diversity on 21 March at a luncheon co-sponsored by the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and the Ad Club of Boston.

Accepting the award in the main ballroom of Boston’s Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel before 500 guests representing the largest business organizations and institutions in the city, President Nemerowicz said, “I am honored to receive this award, which I share with everyone who works or studies at Pine Manor College.
