Outstanding women nominees sought

Do you know of an outstanding female UW student, staff or faculty member who deserves recognition? Consider nominating her for “Celebrating University of Washington Women.”

Celebrating University of Washington Women, in its fourth year, is a program that gives the UW community the opportunity to recognize the contributions of outstanding female students, staff and faculty members. Nominations come from all parts of our campus community, and many levels of contribution are worthy of recognition- from the very personal to the global.

The Celebrating University of Washington Women display and reception are held in March as part of Women’s History Month, allowing us to thank the women contributing to our community today as we reflect upon the contributions of women from our past. This year’s display, recognizing all women nominated, will be in the HUB Art Gallery March 3-17. A reception honoring the nominees will be held March 13 in the gallery.

To submit a nomination, send contact information (including name, address, phone number and e-mail address) for you and the nominee, and a short essay (no more than 250 words) describing the nominee’s contributions to the UW community, to ericab4@u.washington.edu by Feb. 18. Nominations are confidential, and all women nominated will be recognized.

For more information, contact Erica Barton at 616-7259 or ericab4@u.washington.edu.
