The Louisiana Legislative Women’s Caucus is encouraging the University of Louisiana at Monroe faculty, staff and students to nominate individuals for the LLWC Women of Excellence Awards.
The Women’s Caucus created the award to recognize and honor the professional excellence, achievements and contributions of extraordinary women who personify excellence in their area of specialty, along with integrity, character, community service and professionalism.
Categories to which individuals may be nominated are: business, education and research, health and medicine, law and justice, volunteerism and civic involvement, and young woman of excellence (ages 16 to 23).
Nomination forms are due Monday, July 16 and can be downloaded from the Women’s Caucus website at: llwc.louisiana.gov.
According to their website, the LLWC “comprises the women in the Louisiana Legislature, whose collective mission is to prepare the next generation of women leaders and to serve as the premiere voice and leading monitor of issues, legislation and policies which impact women. Since the election of the first woman to the Louisiana Legislature in 1936, women elected to the legislature have increased dramatically in number, strength and influence.”
