DAAS Affiliate Faculty Member Dorceta Taylor has been awarded the CEW Carol Hollenshead Award. An associate professor of Natural Resources & the Environment, Taylor will be presented the award at the CEW Women and Economic Security Conference on Wednesday May 14th at a conference reception preceding a 7 PM. 

In honor of former director Carol Hollenshead’s twenty-year tenure at the Center for the Education of Women, CEW created the Carol Hollenshead Award for Excellence in Promoting Equity and Social Change. Awardees are faculty and staff—either individuals or groups—whose sustained efforts have resulted in greater equity in regard to gender, race, class, age, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

The nominees must be affiliated with the University of Michigan. However, the focus of their efforts may be either within or beyond the university. Honorees will be those who, like Carol, have proven that social change is possible through persistent hard work and who realize that one person can make a lasting difference.
