A Call For Nominations: NH Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Keene State College is accepting nominations for its 2024 President’s Outstanding Women of New Hampshire awards.

This annual recognition in honor of Women’s History Month celebrates women who have made outstanding contributions to their communities. This year’s award theme is Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Women who have worked toward eliminating bias and discrimination from our lives and our institutions will be considered.

Awardees will be chosen in four categories: Keene State Student, Keene State Faculty or Staff, Greater Monadnock Region, and State of New Hampshire. Nomination deadline is Friday, January 19 at noon.

An on-campus celebration to recognize honorees is Thursday, March 28, and is open to the public.

The college recognizes that the desire for equity, diversity, and inclusion is a powerful driving force, and understands that, as members of families, civic and community groups, businesses, and legislative bodies, women are at the forefront of reevaluating the status quo.

“It takes courage for women to advocate for practical goals like equity, diversity, and inclusion when established forces aim to misinterpret, exploit, or discredit them,” Keene State President Melinda Treadwell noted. “It is important that we honor women who have taken the lead to show the importance of change and to establish firmer safeguards, practices, and legislation reflecting these values.”
