More than 100 guests gathered Aug. 31 for a reception at the Kansas Union ballroom to celebrate 25 women featured in KU’s 2015-’16 Women of Distinction calendar. The calendar, produced by the Emily Taylor Resource Center for Women and Gender Equity, recognizes outstanding female faculty, staff, administrators, students and alumni for their significant contributions to the University or their community.
This year’s calendar features nine current students and seven alumnae, along with nine faculty members and staff. It highlights individuals in five areas of service and distinction: Disability Advocates, ’Hawks for Health, Women in Flight, Sisters in Service and Mentors Making a Difference.
“What a great way to acknowledge the importance of women on campus and in our world in a very positive way,” Kathy Rose-Mockry, d’78, g’85, PhD’15, director of the Emily Taylor Resource Center, said of the calendar, which has featured 290 distinguished KU women and is now in its 13th year.
The calendars are available at no charge and can be found at several locations on campus, including the KU Bookstore, Jayhawk Ink and the Emily Taylor Resource Center.
