2022 Department Service Award Winners
Congratulations to our service award winners, and a big thank you to all the nominees for their hard work in making our spaces more inclusive, welcoming and equitable.
Service to Department
Whitney has done a ton of unseen labor for the ESPM GDC, GSA, 290 anti-racism course, and now as the DEI Coordinator and is a strong leader in the department for improvements in JEDI, mentoring, funding, as well as creating community and belonging across all levels of our department. Her leadership throughout her time in ESPM has undeniably shaped the department we are, and the trajectory of what our department may become. She has paved the path for many to follow and become DEI leaders in their own right. From her peers: “It is such a gift to work with her. Thank you Whitney!”
Service to University
Kenzo’s work co-leading the GDC, helping create & then continue to reimagine the ESPM 290 anti-racism course, as well as serving as a steward in the student union have done an incredible job connecting JEDI and workplace fairness efforts within the department to the work being done broadly in the university (and university system as a whole). He has avidly led the campus union to fight for better living conditions for graduate and postdoc students, and works so hard to ensure the graduate community has a safe and healthy environment.
Service to Community
Sebastián has led the creation of diverse and inclusive spaces of academic discussion and community-building for Latinx graduate students on campus. Sebastián has dedicated significant time and energy to promoting diversity and inclusion and has been a dedicated mentor for international students. In Spring 2022, Sebastián was awarded the Outstanding GSI award for his work in the ESPM 150 class taught by Sunaura Taylor to engage a uniquely engaged cohort of students, several of them disabled, queer, and trans folks interested in the relationships between disability justice and the environment.
