Carthage VP honored among region’s Notable BIPOC Executives
BizTimes Media recently featured Michele Hancock, Carthage’s vice president of college culture for inclusion, in a special section recognizing the region’s top BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) leaders.
The Milwaukee media outlet honored 43 Notable BIPOC Executives, both in its Feb. 27 print issue and on its website. Nominated by BizTimes staff and readers, recipients have demonstrated forward-thinking leadership in their organizations and communities.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion is smart business as well as good policy,” said Dan Meyer, publisher of BizTimes Media. “In today’s workplace, ignoring DEI is not an option.”
The Notable Leaders profile highlights Dr. Hancock’s work toward inclusive learning and work environments at Carthage and beyond. The article cites a few specific initiatives: the Urban Teacher Preparation Program, the Anti-Racism and Intercultural Seminar Experience (ARISE) for first-year students, and the Equity and Inclusion Certificate Program for faculty, staff, and community members.
