Judy Bruton, program director of Antioch University Santa Barbara’s Master’s in Business Administration and Women & Leadership programs, and AUSB Trustee Susan Rose among are those chosen for the inaugural Bravo Awards.
The Bravo Awards are presented by the National Association of Women Business Owners Santa Barbara chapter, and Bruton and Rose will be honored at a luncheon on Thursday, March 12 at the University Club in Santa Barbara.
Bruton moved to Santa Barbara in 2009 after a distinguished career in St. Louis that included practicing law, running a psychotherapy practice, running for public office, and serving on many non-profit boards. She joined AUSB upon her move to Santa Barbara.
“Having Nancy Leffert, President of Antioch University Santa Barbara, give me the opportunity to build and launch two new programs over the past two years — our Women & Leadership Certificate Program and our new MBA Program, with a focus on social business, non-profit management, and strategic leadership — that have impacted the lives of so many wonderful students is a significant accomplishment and an even greater honor,” Bruton said.
Rose has over 30 years of experience in the public sector, education, community service and business, including a two-term stint on the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. She also has been active with organizations like the Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee, the Santa Barbara Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Santa Barbara Human Rights Watch Committee.
The Bravo Awards luncheon will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, March 12. Visit www.nawbo-sb.com for more information and to buy tickets.
