Alumni on the Move  
Congratulations to EDI Alumni:  


Nikhil Rao, Leadership Navigation, Class of 2012, has been promoted to Senior Manager for 747 Production System Efficiencies and Cost Initiatives at The Boeing Company.

"EDI allowed me to unlock my potential and leverage my cultural inheritance in a mindful and intentional manner. Skills I learned in the Navigation program have undoubtedly made me a more effective leader. The network of Alumni has been amazing and vital to my continued growth after graduating from the Program.
