Faculty Association honours professor for contributions to equity

Family, friends, and colleagues came together virtually on May 5 to honour philosophy professor Catherine Hundleby as the 2020 recipient of the Mary Lou Dietz Equity Leadership Award.

Dr. Hundleby was nominated by Jeff Noonan who spoke to her many contributions over the years to equity and diversity. The award was established by WUFA’s Status of Women, Diversity, and Equity Action Committee in memory of the late Mary Lou Dietz to honour association members who demonstrate the spirit of leadership through their contributions to creating an equity culture on campus.

Adding to the special occasion was guest speaker Carla Fehr from the University of Waterloo, who spoke to “Visions of Bias in Artificial Intelligence,” and Evanne Dietz, who spoke eloquently about her mother, Dr. Dietz.
