Jessica Mazonson, a second-year MBA student at Sloan School of Management at MIT from Marblehead, was recently named a Siebel Scholar, one of 80 worldwide and one of five from MIT. She will participate in an assembly of young leaders addressing issues of global change.

In the opinion of one nominator, Mazonson will “change the world.” She came to MIT Sloan with a background in grassroots economic development, and while there she has expanded her leadership in related areas.

She received a Legatum Grant to do follow up work with the Women’s Cooperative she began in Peru. She is a leader within SEID (Sloan Entrepreneurs for International Development) and Net Impact, and will be co-chairman for the Sloan Non-Profit Internship Fund in a pivotal rebuilding year. She also founded a new Yoga Club this year and was chosen to work as a professional facilitator and lead organizer for her cohort as part of the Pilot Program in this year’s orientation program.

This past summer, Mazonson worked at Seventh Generation, a leading producer of environmentally friendly paper and cleaning products.

The Siebel Foundation established the Siebel Scholars program in 2000 to recognize the most talented students at the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science, and bioengineering. Each year, 80 exceptional students receive a $35,000 award during their final year of studies based on outstanding academic performance and leadership. Today, our active community of more than 500 Scholars serves as advisors to the Siebel Foundation and works collaboratively to find solutions to society’s most pressing problems.
