The Directors College today announced that applications are open for the NATIONAL Public Relations Emerging Leader Scholarship for the 2018 Chartered Director Program.

“We are proud to support the vision and mandate behind the Directors College Chartered Director Program,” said Rick Murray, Managing Partner of our Toronto office and Chief Digital Officer of the Firm.“ This scholarship will be awarded to an individual who has demonstrated initiative and collaboration – someone who is not afraid to disrupt established business models and can thrive despite incredible levels of uncertainty.”

Candidates must be under the age of 37 with experience in executive, leadership or governance roles.

The Directors College Chartered Director Program raises the bar for professional standards and the dynamic relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility, developing insightful directors who have the courage to ask important questions and the ability to collaborate in the boardroom.

Supporting this initiative was a natural fit for NATIONAL, as corporate responsibility is part of our DNA. As the leading communications consultancy in Canada, we endeavour to make a positive contribution to society. From an economic, social and environmental perspective, we believe that we have an important role to play. This includes working with our clients and community partners to continuously improve the social and environmental impacts of their business activities and communications programs.
