Joanne McGrath Cohoon Service Award

The NCWIT Joanne McGrath Cohoon Service Award honors distinguished educators and staff who have effectively challenged and changed the systems that shape the experiences of women undergraduates in postsecondary computing programs. Winning nominees demonstrate exceptional commitment to and success in creating long-lasting systemic change that improves the environment for all students who identify as women, with attention to practices or interventions that advance the diversity, equity, and inclusion of women from historically excluded groups. The award is given in memory of Dr. Cohoon’s outstanding research and advocacy work to broaden and enrich women’s participation in computing.
The Joanne McGrath Cohoon Award is sponsored by AT&T.
