Werhane to receive Women’s Center Zintl Award

Patricia Werhane By Sarah Whitney

Darden professor Patricia Werhane will receive the 2003 Elizabeth Zintl Award, which recognizes her extensive service to the University.

Werhane, the Peter and Adeline Ruffin Professor of Business Ethics and adjunct professor of philosophy, will be honored Oct. 22 at 4:30 p.m. at a ceremony in Alderman Library’s McGregor Room.

Werhane is the sixth recipient of the Zintl Award, created by the U.Va. Women’s Center to honor the late writer and journalist who served as chief of staff to President John T. Casteen III until her death in 1997. Zintl honorees demonstrate a high degree of professionalism, creativity and commitment that mirrors Elizabeth Zintl’s contributions to the University.

Women’s Center director Sharon Davie said Werhane “has brought extraordinary insight, strength and breadth of vision to all her endeavors — whether as chair of the Faculty Senate, as an outstanding professor at Darden, as a member of the University’s Women’s Leadership Council or as a national leader in the field of ethics. … What she says matters.”

Werhane also was chairwoman of the University’s Envision Integrity initiative last year, where her expertise in business ethics was especially helpful in guiding efforts to integrate honor and integrity more fully into University life, according to vice president for student affairs Patricia M. Lampkin.

At Darden, Werhane has taken a leadership role in making the school and its environs stronger for women. She has served on several search committees, led female faculty in informal and formal gatherings and been an advocate for women’s concerns to the rest of the Darden faculty.

“Her networking ability — to put people and resources together — to create and disseminate knowledge has made this University a much more effective institution,” said colleague R. Edward Freeman, professor of business administration.

Space is limited for the award reception. Call 982-2361 to register.
