Leonard Greenhalgh, a Tuck professor for 38 years and a pioneer of executive education programs for minority and Native American business owners, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from Dartmouth College on January 26, one of the social justice awards associated with the college’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The Martin Luther King Jr. Social Justice Awards honor members of the Dartmouth and Upper Valley community who have contributed significantly to social justice, peace, civil rights, education, public health, or environmental justice. Those eligible for the awards include Dartmouth, Geisel, Thayer, Tuck, and A&S students, graduate students, alumni, faculty, employees, and friends who have contributed significantly to peace, civil rights, education, public health, environmental justice or social justice.
As the longtime Tuck faculty director of programs for minority- and women-owned businesses, as well as a professor of management, Greenhalgh has skillfully taught, counseled, and guided thousands of MBA students and business owners in Hanover and in dozens of countries around the world. He continues this work today in his unique and impactful executive education programs “Building the High-Performing Minority Business” and “Growing the Minority Business to Scale,” and in his Strategic Retreats for Native American Top Management Teams.
Greenhalgh is the author of Minority Business Success: Refocusing on the American Dream (2011, with James H. Lowry), and has written hundreds of articles, papers, and book chapters on topics such as work force and supply chain diversity; the local economies of inner cities and Indian reservations; entrepreneurial business; and the effects of globalization and changing demographics on business.
He was also recently announced as the recipient of Maine’s 2016 Governor’s Environmental Excellence award in recognition of his efforts to preserve coastal wetlands at his wildlife sanctuary on the St. George Peninsula.
