(2018) Ms. Hannah Charnock and Ms. Karen Lithgow Awarded the Provost’s Advocacy and Activism Award in Equity and Diversity.

The University of Victoria acknowledges the presence of dedicated advocates and activists within our community. These individuals address systemic or institutionalized barriers as champions for others. Recognition from others, including the provision of resources, is crucial to fostering an environment that supports and nurtures these individuals or groups and their advocacy and/or activism. These awards recognize the achievements of individuals or groups in the University community (current students, faculty, or staff, and alumni) who demonstrate dedication to the advancement of social equity through advocacy and/or activism. These awards also celebrate individuals or groups who go beyond the expectations of one’s job, position or responsibility to advance the rights of others. 

Congratulations Hannah!! It was wonderful working with you! You and Karen very much deserve this wonderful award !!!!
