One of the highlights of the annual Sisterhood Dinner is the naming of the recipients of the Equity for Women Awards. (See this week’s Diversity Digest for awards and event info.) In 2014, the Council on the Status of Women established the Lifetime Achievement Award to honor individuals in the NC State community whose work over the course of their time at NC State has had long-term impact on equity for women and all members of the campus community. Although the award may not be given every year, this year it was quickly determined that the award should be given to Dean Daniel Solomon of the College of Sciences, who will be retiring soon. Dean Solomon has quietly and persistently worked to increase the presence of female students, graduate students, faculty and staff in STEM fields and in academic leadership at NC State. The Council on the Status of Women is pleased to have the opportunity to facilitate recognition of his achievements.
