Women of Achievement Nominations for 2016-17

Help us identify the University’s Women of Achievement 2016-17.

Do you know of an outstanding colleague or student who could be one of this year’s Women of Achievement?

You can nominate any current female staff or student for their achievements over the last 18 months (since March 2016).  Achievements could be in:

  • research
  • student education or student experience
  • scholarship
  • technical or administrative support.

They might have led to external prizes or awards, or to a major role here or elsewhere.  The judges will also consider sustained contributions to the advancement of women at Leeds or in the wider academic world.

The fifth Women of Achievement awards will culminate in March 2018 with a special event to coincide with International Women’s Day.  This will celebrate these inspirational role models and include an exhibition of photographic portraits of the women being recognised.

The deadline for receipt of nomination forms is Monday 30 October.

Please note, you cannot nominate:

  • staff employed by external organisations, such as LUU, Bright Beginnings, or Unipol, and
  • staff who have already been a Women of Achievement finalist unless they have gone on to attain higher awards or achievements
