The NC State University Council on the Status of Women invites you to nominate NC State University faculty, staff and students for the Equity for Women Award. This award is made annually to recognize faculty, staff and students for their outstanding leadership in establishing equity for women at NC State University. Nominations are solicited from all members of the campus community, including faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners. This year, we will be awarding up to four individuals.

Not sure whom to recommend?  Think about faculty, staff and students of any gender identity who are passionate, ambitious, inspired, courageous, and strong leaders with a commitment to advocacy of gender equity in everyday life at NC State University. Nominees should demonstrate excellence in one or more of the following areas over the past 12 months:

  • Leadership: Taking action to promote gender equity on and beyond campus through leadership roles
  • Service: Supporting equity for women through job-related or voluntary roles
  • Scholarship: Contributing new knowledge and informing policy and practice related to women’s well-being and equality

  • Describe your nominee’s activities with regard to leadership, service and/or scholarship.
