Internet2 Gender Diversity Initiative
The Internet2 Gender Diversity Initiative (https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/gdi) provides Gender Diversity Awards for each Technology Exchange to support women as they enter the information technology field and the Internet2 community. For the 2016 Technology Exchange to be held in Miami, FL, September 25-28, two awards are available:
- The Internet2 Gender Diversity Award
The Internet2 Gender Diversity Award is presented to a woman, including graduate students, working/studying at an Internet2 member organization (higher education, R&E network member, affiliate or corporate) and attending her first Internet2 event.
- The Internet2 Gender Diversity Award in Recognition of Carrie Regenstein
This award is presented in honor of Carrie Regenstein, retired Associate Vice Provost for Computing Services at Carnegie Mellon University, and first chair of the Internet2 InCommon Steering Committee. Consistent with Carrie's path from beginning as an academic technologist to becoming a leader in the InCommon program because of what it could enable on her campus and in all of higher education, consideration will be given to a woman recognized as a “generalist,” that is, an integrator, whose focus is on the use of technology to serve the faculty, staff and students of her institution.
The deadline for applying for either of the awards is August 5, 2016. More details, including information about applying may be found here:
