Graeme Strickland – Undergraduate Diversity Award
GRAEME STRICKLAND (’20)
Business Administration and Peace, War & Defense
Graeme Strickland is a graduating senior at UNC-Chapel Hill studying Business Administration and Peace, War, & Defense. While growing up in Greenville, North Carolina, Graeme’s recognition of stark inequities in the education system drove him to pursue social justice and inclusion work at UNC.
Throughout his college career, Graeme’s activism has taken form through policy advocacy in UNC Young Democrats, and more recently, leading the Community, Equity, & Inclusion Committee at Kenan-Flagler Business School. On this committee, he has helped to launch conversations around imposter syndrome and breaking down the status quo as well as establishing an identity flag display to complement the school’s international flag display.
Following graduation, Graeme will be working for Ernst & Young’s Government Advisory Practice in Washington, D.C. and joining the US reserves. Graeme continues to see social justice, equity, and inclusion as the pillars of his future work and aspirations.
