Sheila Edwards Lange Receives Puget Sound Business Journal Honor

Dr. Sheila Edwards Lange, UW Vice President for Minority Affairs and Vice Provost for Diversity, was honored as one of the Puget Sound Business Journal’s 2011 Women of Influence at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue on Nov. 16.

Dr. Ana Mari Cauce, UW College of Arts & Sciences dean and the preferred candidate for UW provost, and Kellye Testy, UW Law School dean, were among the 600 guests who gathered to salute the honorees.

The award recognizes women within the business community who are influential in their respective fields, respected in their communities, and sought out as advisors and mentors to other women. A panel of judges selected the 15 honorees from nearly 170 nominations.

The Puget Sound Business Journal’s coverage of the event is available here.
