I. Selection Criteria
Candidates will be judged on the following criteria:
- Raising awareness on DEI issues at Lamont
- Working with members of the Lamont community on DEI issues
- Advocating for minority/marginalized groups on campus
- Leadership activities on DEI issues
II. Selection Process
Nominators should submit a letter of nomination (not to exceed 2 pages) describing how the nominee has led or contributed to DEI efforts at Lamont.
Nominators are encouraged to solicit up to two letters in support of the nomination from members of the Lamont Community. Letters of support should not exceed 2 pages each. Letters of support are not required for full consideration of a nominee, but will likely strengthen their case. Note: In order to protect privacy and confidentiality, individual letters for each nominee must be submitted electronically by the letter writer and not as part of a larger dossier. All materials are expected to be confidential. The selection committee will review the nominations and make a recommendation to the Director.
Deadline: All letters must be submitted electronically to the Asst. Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ([email protected]).
Nominees: Current members of LDEO, DEES, IRI, and CIESIN. Note that current members of the selection committee and/or the Lamont Directorate are not eligible for this award.
Nominators: All members of LDEO, DEES, IRI, and CIESIN may submit nominations. Nominations may also be submitted by persons outside of these units who were members of these units within the past two years. Each individual may submit only one nomination per year. There is no limit on the number of supporting letters an individual may submit.
IV. The Award Selection Committee
