Gensler National Diversity Award, 1st Place

May 2011

Gensler, a leading global design and architecture firm, announced the winners of its 2011 Diversity Scholarship. First prize went to Nathalie Jolivert, an architecture student at the Rhode Island School of Design; Marcus Addision Hooks of Yale University received second prize honor.

Gensler's Diversity Scholarship program reflects Gensler's longstanding commitment to the recruitment and development of diverse emerging design talent and was founded to encourage a more robust dialogue between the architectural profession and African-American architecture students. The program raises awareness of the architectural profession as a career choice and seeks to make design careers more accessible for African-American students. The program is a critical component of Gensler's university and student outreach programs.
