New York, NY – June 22, 2015 - With his invitation to be the guest speaker at the Graduate School of Business’s 2015 commencement, accounting professor Chayim Herskowitz has come full circle. “It was very comforting to come back to Touro. I felt like I was back home.”
Prior to enrolling with Touro’s Graduate School of Business, Daphne Theodore was working at an H&M retail store in Manhattan. She encountered a deaf man looking for employment, and rather than see his impediment as a liability, she saw past the applicant’s hearing and sensed he’d be a committed, reliable colleague. She was right. The man still works at that H&M, and the experience continues to inspire Daphne as she studies toward a career in human resources.
"I'll show that HR’s not just about hiring and firing and benefits," she says. "It's important for me to see each person as an individual."
The way Theodore sees it—and the way Touro’s Graduate School of Business feels in kind—if we can create opportunities for others, it’s the most enriching thing we can do for ourselves.
