The Women Faculty Forum is initiating the “Elga R. Wasserman Courage, Clarity, and Leadership Award,” a new award to honor a Yale woman every year who has demonstrated tremendous courage, clarity, and leadership in their community service. This award is named after Elga Ruth Wasserman, whose trailblazing career in the University’s administration and extraordinary advocacy on behalf of Yale women in the early years of coeducation continues to inspire future champions of gender equity and diversity in higher education.
This year, the Women Faculty Forum is thrilled to present the inaugural 2021 Elga R. Wasserman Award to Dr. Stephanie Spangler (MD), Clinical Professor of OB/GYN at the Medical School and the Vice Provost for Health Affairs and Academic Integrity and University Title IX Coordinator. Stephanie has been an invaluable leader in consolidating the University’s Covid-19 task force and strengthening the community’s spirit of cooperation during a time of immense grief and uncertainty. The ceremony will also include a memorial on Elga Wasserman’s career and legacy.
