Status of Women in the Profession Outstanding Service in Mentoring Awards

The Status of Women in the Profession Outstanding Service in Mentoring Awards
Each year at the SBL Annual Meeting, CSWP honors women who have been excellent mentors to women in the field. These mentors have provided invaluable guidance, advice, and encouragement. They serve as role models and assist other women in navigating career choices, building professional networks, and developing strategies for work-life balance. CSWP honors mentors in order to recognize their contributions and to encourage mentoring relationships. 

If you would like to nominate a mentor, please send your nomination with a descriptive letter of endorsement to April Deconick. Nominations must be received by June 1st. Nominations received after the deadline will be considered for the following year.
