ALAANA+ Women's Leadership Cohort 

The ALAANA+ Women's Leadership Cohort (ALAANA+, in this context, stands for African American/African/Black, Latina/Latinx, Asian American/Asian, Arab/Middle Eastern, Native American, and all multicultural folks) is a cohort leadership opportunity geared towards first- and second-year multicultural women providing them with a community to: cultivate community and establish connections within the Cohort and throughout the OHIO community; discover their leadership potential; identify their own personal, professional, and leadership goals; and, create action plans to achieve those goals.  Anyone who believes a program of this nature would benefit their personal, professional, and leadership development is welcome, and encouraged, to apply.

Women's Issues Leadership Award

The Women's Issues Leadership Award is offered annually at the Leadership Awards Gala through the Division of Student Affairs. The recipient is chosen through a committee created by the Women's Center and recognizes a student or student organization that has shown outstanding leadership and/or community involvement on women's and gender issues, or has raised consciousness about those issues.

In order to be considered for the award:

  • Nominee must demonstrate a commitment to creating a campus climate in which all women and girls can be full and equal participants at OHIO or in the larger society.

All nominees are asked to fill out the student application form, which includes submitting their resume and an essay that describes why they should be considered for this leadership award, and how they have contributed to advancing women and gender issues on campus, in the community, and beyond.
