Nominations open: Louise de Marillac Spirit and Mentorship Award


DePaul Women's Network

This year, the DePaul Women's Network is honoring mentors. Managing our professional careers as women, femmes, trans or non-binary folks doesn't happen alone. Who are the people at DePaul who have mentored and guided you? Who do you go to when you need career advice? Who lends you an ear when you're trying to figure out a sticky work-life situation? Honor your DePaul mentor by nominating them for the Louise de Marillac Spirit and Mentorship Award. Submissions are due May 9.

Who should be recognized?

The DePaul Women's Network, the Women's Center and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity call upon all members of the DePaul community to recognize female, femme, trans or nonbinary faculty, staff and students who truly exemplify the Vincentian leadership embodied by St. Louise.

Mentorship takes many forms: a colleague who always looks out for you. A professor who helps you navigate your academic path beyond the classroom. A fellow student who has helped you get your footing at DePaul. A supervisor who is helping you identify your next step. Mentors can be both formal and informal. Nominations are due Monday, May 9.

Honorees will receive their award at the 2022 St. Louise de Marillac Women of Spirit and Action Awards ceremony on May 13. All are welcome to RSVP and attend the online event.

The program will feature interactive opportunities to share mentorship strategies and celebrate our mentors and mentees. Attendees will hear about the impact that a good mentor has on members of our community. As part of our celebration, we will also raffle off ten $50 GrubHub certificates. Join us for an afternoon hour full of community, conversations and inspiration from the people living Louise's legacy.

DePaul Women's Network provides peer supports, networking and professional development opportunities to women, femmes, non-binary, trans and gender-creative members of the DePaul community.​
