WFPA announces new award, seeks nominations

The Women’s Faculty and Professional Association is seeking nominations of women at U.Va. for its new “Leading Light” Award, as well as for the Aspiring Woman and Woman of Achievement awards. The deadline for all award nominations is March 1.

The Leading Light Award will recognize a professional woman who is in the early or middle stage of her career, but is already making an impact at U.Va. The WFPA is looking for candidates who have gained the respect of peers and supervisors and who demonstrate integrity, confidence and developing leadership skills.

The Aspiring Woman Award is given to an employee who has returned to pursue a degree, whether associate, undergraduate or graduate. It includes a $500 scholarship. The Woman of Achievement Award honors a woman who is a leader in the effort to improve the status and environment of women within the U.Va. community or who is an outstanding manager, organizer, researcher or teacher.

The awards ceremony will take place April 30 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Newcomb Hall South Meeting Room. For more information, visit www.virginia.edu/~wfpa.
