Do you know of an individual (or individuals) who has been an exceptional advocate for justice, equality, and access for women? If so, we encourage you to submit your nomination(s) for the YaleWomen Award for Excellence.
Inaugurated in 2016, the YaleWomen Award for Excellence is the highest award bestowed by YaleWomen. It “recognizes a particularly outstanding individual or individuals for either a singular contribution, or for contributions made over many years, to the goals and aspirations for which YaleWomen was founded. The YaleWomen Award for Excellence shall be given to an individual (or individuals) who has been an exceptional advocate for justice, equality, and access for women.”
YaleWomen may bestow two kinds of awards: the YaleWomen Award for Excellence for Lifetime Achievement and the YaleWomen Impact Award. You will find award descriptions and nomination criteria on the online nomination form.
We will celebrate the YaleWomen Award for Excellence again in the fall of 2018. With this issue of the enewsletter, we open the call for online nominations. While nominations are solicited and can be submitted year-round, the deadline for nominations to be considered for the 2018 award is Monday, January 15, 2018. You can submit multiple nominations! Please note that YaleWomen will maintain all nominations that are submitted and that nominees who may not be selected in one year may be eligible again in the future.
The YaleWomen Award for Excellence offers a distinctive and compelling opportunity to recognize individual(s) who have been advocates for justice, equality, and access for women in many different ways and walks of life. We look forward to hearing from you!
