The 2019-20 Outstanding Women of Color come from varied interests ranging from a Madison City Council member and a computational chemist to an Alzheimer’s research advocate and a university Chief of Staff. There’s also a geneticist and a pediatrician/public health educator, along with a psychology researcher who explores the intersection of gender identity and immigration as a form of discrimination. They’re passionate, they’re innovative and they’re making an impact on the UW–Madison campus and the nation.
The twelfth cohort of Outstanding Women of Color awardees will be honored at a reception on Thursday, March 5 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge of the Pyle Center, 716 Langdon Street. The event to celebrate this year’s honorees is open to the campus and community. To register for this year’s event, go to Outstanding Women of Color Reception.
