Queen's University

2011 Winner

Employment Equity Award 2011

The Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Alan Harrison presented the inaugural 2011 Employment Equity Award to Wendy Powley, a staff member in the School of Computing.

Ms Powley founded Women in the School of Computing (WISC) at Queen’s, an informal support, networking and social group for all women faculty, staff and students. The group has provided outreach and mentorship to young women in the Kingston community through the LEGO robotics program with the hope of educating and inspiring more girls to consider a career in computing.

A Council on Employment Equity initiative, the Queen’s Employment Equity Award is awarded annually to recognize and celebrate achievements of individuals and groups who, through their ongoing diligence and commitment, are helping Queen’s become more representative and inclusive.
