In April 2013, the ODGE hosted a celebration of of 47 graduate women at MIT who were nominated by their peers, faculty, and staff, including three students from DUSP: Christine Curella, Sofia Lopez, and Naomi Stein. The honorees were nominated and selected based on their leadership and service contributions at the Institute, their dedication to mentoring and their drive to make changes to improve student experience. At the celebration, held at the Microsoft NERD Center, honorees presented posters to help attendees:
- learn about their accomplishments;
- celebrate their work; and
- discover the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.
Women’s Groups around MIT were also recognized for the incredible work being done to support graduate women. Each of the nine groups had a poster detailing their history and goals. To learn more about the awards, visit the MIT ODGE page.
