Please join Awards Officer Thomas Barber and 2019 Trudeau Fellow Aimée Morrison, as they take you through the Myths and Realities of applying for Academic Awards and Prizes. Aimée will share the myths she battled in the process of applying for the revamped Trudeau Foundation Fellowship and Tom will take you behind the green curtain to expose the great and powerful A.H.D. (awards, honours, and distinctions).
Fewer than 25% of the people nominated for awards from UW are women. Very few women put themselves forward for open call nominations and we are hoping to change this. At the end of this presentation, attendees will leave with a better understanding of the various steps, stages, and tasks of the awards nomination process, as well as some insider knowledge about less obvious pathways by which scholars and administrators shepherd nominations through this process.
(Note: Staff members can play an important role in supporting academic award nominations! We'd love to see women & nonbinary folk in all roles at UW come out for this discussion.)
Please register by 8:00 a.m. November 26 to give us an idea of how much food to order!
