Dot Waldrup Memorial Award

The AWA has created an award to recognize the accomplishments of one of our founding members, Dot Waldrup.

The Dot Waldrup Memorial Award recognizes Dot’s many years of legal work representing victims of sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Dot conducted employer-sponsored workshops, educating hundreds of employees to recognize and avoid gender discrimination, bias and inequity in the workplace. Dot fought tirelessly for the victims of sexual harassment and gender inequality, as well as other forms of employment discrimination.

The honorarium is presented in the form of an award given to a student at the Newcomb College Institute. The award recognizes the recipient’s academic achievements in studying issues of gender in the workplace.
