On the occasion of the 175th Anniversary of Queen’s University, The Ban Righ Foundation will celebrate the achievements of women at the university and in the community through the initiation of two new awards for mentoring and leadership. The Ban Righ Foundation is currently seeking nominations for the two awards:

The Ban Righ Foundation Mentorship Award is for a Queen’s University faculty member (current or retired faculty) who identifies as a woman and is someone who

  • has demonstrated mentorship and knowledge-sharing (Mentoring involves listening, motivating, connecting, sharing knowledge or wisdom, asking good questions that support growth, etc.)
  • has supported support women in achieving their goals
  • has inspired a student or students

The Ban Righ Foundation Leadership Award is for an individual who identifies as a woman, and whose leadership has

  • built capacity and fostered opportunities for others
  • made a positive contribution to the Kingston community
  • been inspirational

The awards will be presented at The Ban Righ Foundation Inspiring Women, an evening at The Isabel on Tuesday, Oct 18, 2016 from 7:30-10:00 p.m. at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.

Join Shelagh Rogers, Artsci ‘77 (CBC radio host and producer and Chancellor of University of Victoria) as she moderates a lively panel discussion about what moves, motivates and inspires women to achieve. Enjoy music from Georgette Fry’s Shout Sister choir and singer Chantal Thompson. Hear from poet Elizabeth Greene and current PhD student and mother of two, Sarah Kastner. The evening promises to be thought provoking, motivating, and fun!
