Laurene Powell Jobs, MBA '91, Accepts the 2019 Ernest C. Arbuckle Award

“We must broaden our understanding of what makes for good business…we must care for the well-being of our workers – pay them fairly, provide them with good benefits – and make sure they reflect the full spectrum of humanity.”⁣⁣⁣

Laurene Powell Jobs, MBA ‘91, is the recipient of this year’s annual Ernest C. Arbuckle Award. Stanford GSB recognized Powell Jobs for her dedication to fighting income inequality through her organization, @EmersonCollective, which uses philanthropy and policy to tackle some of society’s most oppressive systems. ⁣⁣

As she accepted the honor, awarded by Dean Jon Levin, Powell Jobs encouraged alumni and students to “be more just and honest and kind and true and loving, not only in our places of work, but in every aspect of our lives. I know we can, and we must.”
