Women's Leadership Award

The deadline is next week for nominations for the eighth annual Women's Leadership Award, which will be presented at the Women's Network spring luncheon on May 9. One honoree from each chapter — APL, Bayview, Homewood, JHMI and SAIS — will be selected, based on her leadership in motivating others in their work and community; developing leadership skills in others; mentoring; increasing employee knowledge of critical issues facing an office, division or department; or strengthening the commitment of faculty, staff and students to the university.

This year's nomination process has changed slightly; instead of submitting an essay about the candidate's qualifications, the form asks nominators to answer five questions, in as much detail as possible, providing examples of how the nominee demonstrates leadership in each category. To make a nomination, go to, complete and save the form as an attachment and submit it by e-mail to Nora Koch at by Friday, Feb. 29. Nominations that are incomplete or not submitted by e-mail will not be considered. Nominators will be notified of the judges' decisions well in advance of the May 9 event.

For more information about the Women's Leadership Award or the nomination process, contact Nora Koch at 410-516-5078 or
