Call for Nominations for Penn Pro Women’s Awards:
The Penn Professional Women’s Network solicits nominations for its three major annual awards to be given on April 13, 2006 at the Penn Pro Women Annual Awards Breakfast.
The Alice Paul Awards, named for the famous suffragist leader and Penn alumna who founded the National Women’s Party and authored the Equal Rights Amendment, are awarded to students, regardless of gender, who have demonstrated outstanding service to women in the Penn community. The Lenore Williams Award, named in honor of the wife of former provost Edwin B. Williams, is given to a distinguished female scholar or leader whose contributions extend within and beyond our campus. The Robert E. Davies Award, in honor of the late feminist and distinguished Penn scholar, recognizes any individual(s) for their work for social change. The Judith Seitz Rodin Prize for Innovative Leadership is given to a junior or senior woman who has demonstrated innovative leadership through a program, service, or scholarly activity. The award was established in spring 2004. The Lynda Hart Award is given to a woman student who has made an outstanding contribution to the artistic life of the Penn campus. The award, established in the spring 2001 is in memory of Lynda Hart, Professor of English, who was a mentor to many and a moving force behind the Women’s Theater Festival.
