UCLA student and CDLS fellow recognized as 2019 William Sharpe Fellow

Leonard Washington, a Center for Diverse Leadership Fellow and undergraduate business student at UCLA, has been recognized as a 2019 William Share Fellow for Consulting. As a Sharpe Fellow, Lenny represents the top 2% of business students at UCLA.

The William Sharpe Fellows Program was created in 2008 to support the career and professional development of undergraduate students. The program prides itself on being “a guided networking and professional development program for those committed to maximizing their Bruin network.” Sharpe fellows, such as Lenny, receive support in securing and preparing for a summer internship in their industry of interest. So far, the program has connected their fellows to industries such as investment banking, finance, consulting, and technology.

In regards to his achievement, Lenny says, “I am truly blessed to receive this award. I’m currently working to find internship opportunities at the intersection of sustainability and sports business.” For his career, Lenny aspires to be a Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) for a sports organization or own an environmental consulting firm.
