AGSM listed among Oregon’s best

by University Communications,

The Atkinson Graduate School of Management was again named to Oregon Business magazine’s list of the “Best 100 Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon.” All organizations that made the list were recognized during a special dinner and awards program on October 1 in Portland.

This is the second year the Atkinson School has made the list, categorized as a “medium sized” organization. The magazine previously listed the Atkinson School among Oregon’s 100 best green organizations for Willamette’s commitment to environmental stewardship, sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

Keynote speaker Nichole June Maher of the Northwest Health Foundation reminded the crowd of the essential role nonprofits play in shaping Oregon’s economy and responding to the needs of diverse populations. “Every nonprofit needs to reflect the community Oregon has become today,” she said.
