About the Tapestry Award

The Tapestry Award honors a Black Stanford GSB alumnus or alumna who has woven inspirational leadership, intellectual excellence, and service to others through his or her professional and personal life.

Tapestries, as well as the art of weaving, are sources of tradition and pride in the Black community. Like a finely textured fabric, this individual has, through their contribution and actions, reminded us of the strength, beauty, and integrity of our ancestry and the importance of maintaining these qualities in our lives. The selection committee considers the following factors in selecting an award recipient:

  • Leadership
  • Excellence
  • Service
  • Overall life balance
  • Impact

Nominations were solicited from the Black alumni community.
