Celebrate UW Women 2019

Kick off National Women’s History Month by celebrating the women who have made an impact on your life at the UW. Each year, UW faculty, staff and students are invited to nominate the woman-identified teammates, mentors, teachers, colleagues, coaches, friends and supervisors who have inspired them to work hard, be strong and persist. All nominees will be honored at a celebration on Thursday, February 28, 2019. 

Nominations Are Now Open 

This year marks 15 years of celebrating outstanding UW women. In 2005, the program’s first year, 20 women were recognized. Since then, the program has grown in volume and reach culminating in over 200 nominations in 2017! Nominations have included students, faculty, staff and alumni from disciplines and departments on all three UW campuses. Nominations are now open. Go to the nomination form and tell us about a woman-identified person who has inspired you, helped you through a difficult time, advocated for you, showed great strength or helped others on campus achieve their goals. Three special nominations will be chosen to be read aloud during the celebration. Nominations will close on February 15 at noon.
