Robbins-Ollivier Award for Excellence in Equity Information Session
Wednesday, May 18, 11 a.m.-12 p.m.
The university community is invited to attend a virtual information session to learn more about the inaugural Robbins-Ollivier Award for Excellence in Equity, a national honour launched by the Canada Research Chairs Program (CRCP). The award recognizes the significant contributions that Marjorie Griffin Cohen, Louise Forsyth, Glenis Joyce, Audrey Kobayashi, Shree Mulay — who is based in Memorial’s Faculty of Medicine — Susan Prentice, Michèle Ollivier and Wendy Robbins have made to increase the level of equity in Canada’s research ecosystem. Universities can submit only one nomination in a given year for bold, game-changing research. Those interested in learning more about the award – as well as the institutional process regarding Memorial’s nomination – are invited to attend. Ellen Steinhauer and Pamela White, from the Research Initiatives and Services team, will facilitate a discussion taking place on Wednesday, May 18, from 11 a.m.-noon. Those interested in attending can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for the log-in instructions.
