COVID-19: News and Campus Updates

Annual Recognition Reception

The Annual Recognition Reception provides an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the inspiring women and the outstanding leadership of individuals who have made a difference on this campus and in this community. Each year the center for women's and gender equity presents two awards: Inspiring Women's Award and Outstanding Mentor Award. Individuals on campus are encouraged to nominate students, faculty and staff for these awards.  

Inspiring Women's Awards

To be inspired is to feel moved, motivated and influenced in a way that speaks to one’s own unique spirit, truths, goals, and commitments. The Inspiring Women’s Awards is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate women students, staff, and faculty who have inspired others around them. To be inspirational cannot be defined in one simple way. There are endless ways in which we are inspired and inspire others within our campus community. This award allows us to honor women at UNC who make a difference every day in the lives of others by being who they are and doing what they do. 

We are currently not accepting nominations. Check back for updates.

Outstanding Mentor Award

A mentor is someone who provides guidance, support, encouragement, opportunity and offers space for growth and self-discovery. The Outstanding Mentor Award is an opportunity to recognize individuals at UNC who go above and beyond to mentor women students at UNC. These individuals not only contribute to the success of students with whom they work, they foster an environment in which women have an opportunity to use their voices and see their potential at UNC and beyond.

We are currently not accepting nominations. Check back for updates.
