The KMBS community is among the creators of the Georgiy Gongadze Award, presented for the 1st time on May 21 in Kyiv.
The prize is intended to support those journalists who follow the principles and values of independent journalism; who demonstrate professionalism, competence, and innovation; who create materials that contribute to solving or understanding the problems in society and changes in the country, as well as making a significant contribution to the development of the media.
The inaugural award was presented to Vakhtang Kipiani, journalist, historian, editor-in-chief of the Internet publication Istorychna Pravda, and the founder of the Museum-Archive of the Press.
21 Ukrainian journalists were nominated for the award. This marks the first project of the Association of Graduates of the Kyiv-Mohyla Business School, which has an impact on the social transformation in Ukraine.
We are proud that our alumni became sponsors of the Award, and in doing so, have laid the foundations of a modern culture of giving back in Ukraine. We are extremely proud of the initiative of our graduates, who are an important part of the Kyiv-Mohyla Business School and lead the process of positive change in Ukraine.
