The Women and Gender Studies Excellence in Inclusion Award recognizes outstanding student projects (research or creative works) that explore issues pertaining to diversity and inclusion at CU Boulder or in the U.S. more generally. This award is designed to help foster an inclusive and welcoming campus climate at CU Boulder for students of all backgrounds, including first-generation students, minority students, women, LGBTQ, and other historically underrepresented groups in the field of education. This year we awarded the prize to two outstanding students: Jocelyne Becerra Garcia for her video The 4.6% of CU-Boulder which spoke to the experience of Latina women on campus, and Daryn Copeland for their photographic zine Pansy, a charming narrative of coming into gender-neutral pronouns and the possibilities that they open up.
