The Nan Langowitz Women Who Make a Difference Award

Sponsored by the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership, this annual award honors women whose work has had a significant, positive impact on the Babson community in the last year.

This award was first presented in 1995 and began in Student Affairs. The award was originally designed to honor students, faculty, and staff who impacted the lives of Babson’s undergraduate students but has evolved over the years. This award also has been designed to increase the profile of women at Babson and increase the attractiveness of Babson as a place to study, work, and teach. In addition, the award supports the College’s current goal to extend Babson’s capabilities to the world. There is an event each year during Women’s History Month to honor both the nominees and the winners of this award.

Criteria

The Center for Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership encourages the nomination of students, faculty, and staff who have coordinated and implemented programs/initiatives that brought diverse members of the Babson campus together. Nominees also may have led their teams, organizations, classes, or departments toward reaching goals that benefit their group and the College overall.

Past award winners have been positive role models who have demonstrated strength, intelligence, and integrity in challenging others to achieve professionally, academically, and personally.
