Women of Excellence Awards

Catherine Walker, CND with members of the administration team

The Progress Women of Excellence Awards takes place each November. Hosted by the Canadian Progress Club Halifax Cornwallis, it honours 7 inspirational women who play an important role in our community. Women at the pinnacle of their professions are recognized in the following categories: Arts and Culture, Communications/Public Affairs, Education and Research, Entrepreneur/Innovator, Health Sport and Wellness, Management and the Professions and Young Women of Distinction.

This year, Progress Women of Excellence is honouring Libby Osgood, recognizing her as a passionate educator and innovative researcher.

“Dr. Elizabeth Osgood annually inspires thousands of students and members of the public by sharing her experiences launching satellites with NASA and work in Kenya. A graduate of Dalhousie University, she achieved her doctorate in Mechanical Engineering; her ground‐breaking research focuses on improving teaching methods in engineering education. Elizabeth has taken a 2-year leave of absence from her job as an Assistant Professor at the University of Prince Edward Island to begin training to be a religious sister for the Congregation of Notre-Dame at the Novitiate in New York.”

Congratulations Libby!
