The Committee on the Advancement of Women Faculty (CAWF) is pleased to announce that Paige Williams has been selected to receive the inaugural CAWF Service Award. Dr. Williams is Senior Lecturer on Biostatistics and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Biostatistics.
Dr. Williams was a founding member, in 1991, of the Committee on the Concerns of Women Faculty, now the Committee on the Advancement of Women Faculty. She served as its co-chair and was instrumental in establishing it as a standing committee.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Williams has worked to promote the Committee’s agenda: In 1996, she conducted an analysis of promotion rates by gender at the School. She continued to conduct this analysis at three- to four-year intervals, and, in 2015, she provided coaching along with her analysis program to the Dean’s Office for the continuation of this critical institutional research. She helped oversee the salary analysis conducted by Johns Hopkins University in 2007-2008 and has been given an advisory role in the current salary analysis being undertaken by the Office of the Dean to evaluate any potential disparities by gender or race/ethnicity. Dr. Williams served on a 3-member committee that developed the School’s first maternity and paternity leave policy in 2002, and was involved in updating the family leave policy in 2006.
Dr. Williams will receive the CAWF Service award at the Alice Hamilton Award Lecture and Ceremony, Tuesday, May 8, 2018, 2:30 – 4:15 PM in Kresge Cafeteria. A reception in the Rosenau Atrium will follow the ceremony.
