Session Description

The sixteenth cohort of Outstanding Women of Color Award recipients will be honored at a reception on Thursday, March 7, 20204 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Varsity Hall at Union South, 1308 W Dayton Street. The event to celebrate this year’s honorees is open to the campus and community.

Each year, we recognize honorees whose advocacy, activism, and/or scholarship has positively transformed their organizations and/or community, and whose efforts advance equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging for people of color.

“These outstanding women are simply a representation of the countless women who have made excellence the standard within the academy and the community, while also humbly pouring into so many,” said Deputy Vice Chancellor and Chief Diversity Officer LaVar J. Charleston. “Collectively, we want to make certain they know how valued they are by their villages, how respected and appreciated they are by their colleagues, and how loved they are by their family and friends.”

Please plan to join us in honoring our honorees at a campus-wide reception hosted by the Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement on Thursday, March 7, 2024 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Varsity Hall at Union South, 1308 W Dayton Street
