Recognizing inspiring women in our faculty and community

The Ban Righ Foundation is now accepting nominations for this year’s Inspiring Women Awards.

The award recognizes mentorship, knowledge sharing, and leadership by faculty members and community members, who identify as women, and who inspire students and build capacity and opportunities for others.  

Each year two Inspiring Women Awards are presented. The Ban Righ Foundation Mentorship Award recognizes a Queen’s University faculty member (current or retired) who self-identifies as a woman and who has supported women in achieving their goals, inspired students, and demonstrated mentorship and knowledge sharing.

The Ban Righ Foundation Leadership Award recognizes an individual who self-identifies as a woman and who has built capacity and fostered opportunities for others, made positive contributions within the broader Kingston community, and been inspirational.

A celebration will be held combining the Student Spring Awards Ceremony and Inspiring Women Awards at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts on April 27, 2023.

The 2023 Inspiring Women Awards nomination deadline is Nov. 18 at 3 p.m.
