Determined. Ebony Rose is determined that everyone have the best experience possible at TCU. The human resources senior development consultant’s work toward achieving this goal led to her recent receipt of the latest Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award.
“I’ve been really lucky to have the support of TCU in developing my own skills as a diversity, equity and inclusion practitioner and as a member of our consulting team in human resources,” she said. “There’s really a passion here to find ways to align our current state and our future state as an institution to make sure all of our community members have the best experience they can.”
Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. presented the award at Fall Convocation.
“In the nomination forms, Ebony received accolades for advancing DEI at TCU by developing and leading campus-wide training programs on inclusion and sustaining excellence to influence positive change for everyone in our community,” he said.
Her nominators heaped praise.
“I cannot think of another individual on TCU’s campus who has worked harder to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive campus than Ebony Rose,” one wrote. “She lives and breathes these values – and has been for years.”
Full-time at TCU since 2012, Rose has worked in Human Resources since 2018 where she designs and facilitates learning and development for all employee stakeholders with a focus on the university’s DEI strategy.
The DEI Award honors the important work of further transforming the TCU community into one that celebrates the university mission and creates a world-class university built on a heritage of inclusion. Faculty, staff and students may nominate an individual. Finalists are selected by the DEI Award Committee who provides recommendations to the chancellor. The winner receives $5,000.
