The awards recognize excellence in support of gender equity, women’s empowerment, women’s history or cultures of inclusion; and celebrate students, faculty and staff who have demonstrated significant leadership, achievement, advocacy or service at the campus, community, national and/or international level.

Karen Dace, vice chancellor for diversity, equity and inclusion, will give a keynote address honoring the 2024 Women’s History Month national theme, “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.”

Women’s History Month was established by Congress in 1987 to address the fact that, “the role of American women in history has been consistently overlooked and undervalued in the body of American history.”
