Background & Purpose

Thanks to a gift from the Estate of Beverley A. Dales, we have been fortunate to establish the Beverley A. Dales Award for Women in Leadership dedicated to fostering connections among the female members of our Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science in Management (MScM) and Master of Health Administration (Community Care) cohorts who demonstrate a dedication to leadership in their community and/or workplace. Beverley graduated from Ryerson in 1960 with a diploma in Merchandising Administration and always considered her Ryerson education as a springboard to an interesting and engaging career. 

In 1997, Beverley was honoured to accept a position on Ryerson University’s Board of Governors and proudly served two terms as an active and vocal member. She also served as a Board member of YWCA of Toronto where she helped to launch the Women of Distinction Awards. During her life, she was also a volunteer, donor and proud supporter of the Canadian Women’s Foundation, Interval House and the Stephen Lewis Foundation and its Grandmothers’ Gathering. Beverley passed away in 2016.

The Ted Rogers School of Management is honoured to connect the name of one of its most distinguished alumni with the Women in Leadership Awards. Beginning in 2018 and in each subsequent year, the Beverley A. Dales Award will be one of the awards presented at the WiLA Award Reception.

Background & Purpose

Through an initiative led by the Women in Leadership Association (WiLA) to elevate public awareness of Ted Rogers School of Management’s Not An Old Boy campaign, a one-time $10,000 contribution was made by the Dean to establish this award. It will be distributed through four (4) x $2,500 scholarships to graduate students at the Ted Rogers School of Management.

The purpose of this award is to celebrate Ted Rogers School of Management’s mandate in breaking the mould of business schools, boardrooms, corporate Canada and the traditional image tied to strong leadership potential, which supports the notion that success and advancement is Not an Old Boy’s club. This award promotes the fundamental principles of diversity and inclusion as a catalyst to corporate success and recognizes the inherent value in diversity of thought, both formally and informally.

The Not An Old Boy Award will be given to champions of change who break down barriers and stereotypes, use a platform of equal opportunity and diversity/inclusion to leverage collaboration over competition, and create successes anywhere from classroom to work place, and/or to communities.
