If you want to see change, you gotta be part of making change. I nominated four outstanding Canadian women for the 2014 A Bold Vision initiative, a meeting of 23 outstanding women in Canada. I'm taking a leaf from Dawn Bazely's example (see here and here) by posting about why I think they are terrific candidates. Click on their names to read the full nomination.
Update: Turns out that I was nominated too!
Here is my plea for YOU to nominate terrific people for awards - and to encourage people to self-nominate! Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see some awards in science, social justice, conservation, and more. Please consider diversity of all types when you think of nominees.
