Nominations open until Feb. 28 for ‘Celebrating University of Washington Women’

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 sixth 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. This year’s display, recognizing all women nominated, will be in the HUB Art Gallery from March 15 to April 2. A reception honoring the nominees will be held March 17 in the HUB Art Gallery.

To submit a nomination, send contact information (including name, address, phone number and email 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 February 28. Nominations are confidential, and all women nominated will be recognized.

Nominations are due February 28. For more information, contact Erica Barton at 206-616-7259 or ericab4@u.washington.edu.
