A Community Project to honour women who have enriched our lives

The Ban Righ Centre supports mature women who are starting or returning to education at Queen’s University. In taking this significant step, these women found role models, advocates and inspiration in other women. Then, as they engage in their studies and in their activities beyond Queen’s with friends, family, peers and colleagues, these students effect continual and positive change, extending the reach of their mentors and the Ban Righ Centre. Through “Who Is She?” we honour women who make a difference.

Jane Good

Honoured by: Career Services

“You have brains in your head and feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose…” So reads page two from the Dr. Seuss book, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” It’s a sentiment encouraged by Jane Good during her 14+ years working as a career counsellor at Career Services. Jane has a reputation for fostering growth—in plants, in programs and in people. Self-effacing to a fault, Jane never mentions the individual contributions she has made at Queen’s but they are many and unfailingly student centred. We celebrate Jane (in a slightly Seussian way) so that: she knows, that we know, that where she goes, STUFF GROWS! Students’ stories and challenges inspired Jane’s work and were voices she strongly desired to be heard. “Who is she?” exemplifies that spirit. Colleagues past and present salute Jane as she heads into retirement and cheer her forward with thoughts from her friend, Dr. Seuss: “And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed!
