Nominations: Women of Color

The National Institute of Women of Color has designated the first day of Women's History Month (March) as National Women of Color Day. For the ninth consecutive year, the University will seek to increase the community's awareness of the talents and achievements of women of color. As in past years, we will recognize people in our community whose special commitment and dedicated service to Penn, HUP and/or the Delaware Valley have made a difference in the lives of women of color. Our awards ceremony will be held Friday, March 1, 1996 from noon to 2 p.m. in the Penn Tower Hotel.

We need your assistance in identifying nominees for the 1996 awards. Honorees must be students, faculty or staff members at Penn or HUP. Please help us ensure that these talented and committed people receive the recognition that they deserve. Nominations will be accepted until February 2, 1996. For a nomination form describing the selection process, or for additional information, please contact me at 898-1446. Thank you for your assistance in this important effort.
