Toward an inclusive economy: BMO donates $1.5 million to the Institute for Gender and the Economy
A gift from BMO will enable the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE) at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management to drive its mission: to use rigorous academic research to change the conversation on gender and the economy.
The generous donation of $1.5 million will support GATE’s research agenda, including a global collaboration on the care economy and studies of behavioural interventions to create inclusive organizations.
The gift will provide funding for the newly renamed BMO GATE MBA Fellowships, which issue a bursary each year for five Rotman students to work on a project related to the mandate of GATE. The inaugural recipients are Syed Ahmad Nafisul Abrar, Alex Foty, NIshtha Taneja, Wendy Nguyen and Corrina Vali.
