Reception honours equity champion

Family, friends and colleagues came together at Kerr House on June 4 for a reception honouring Lynda Corkum as the 2014 recipient of the Mary Lou Dietz Equity Leadership Award.

Dr. Corkum was nominated by Charles Macdonald and Marlys Koschinsky who spoke to her many contributions over the years to equity and diversity.

The award was established by the Status of Women, Diversity and Equity Action Committee of the Windsor University Faculty Association in memory of Mary Lou Dietz. It honours WUFA members who demonstrate the spirit of leadership through their contributions to creating an equity culture on campus.

Adding to the special occasion was the presence of Dr. Dietz’s daughter, Evanne Dietz, son Leif Lorenz, daughter-in-law Patti Lorenz, granddaughters Nadia Dietz and Liliana Lorenz and grandson Mac Lorenz.
