Second-year CRDM student Krystin Gollihue has been nominated for an Equity for Women Award, sponsored by the NC State University Council on the Status of Women. Nominations are for faculty, staff and students who exhibit outstanding leadership in establishing equity for women at NC State University.
Krystin’s service to CRDM and the broader NC State community centers on the ways women can be supported, emotionally and professionally. As secretary of CRDM-SA, she has continued her predecessor’s, CRDM third-year Meridith Reed, commitment to mentorship within CRDM and has organized many groups and conversations on ways that we can better support intersectional work in academia. In addition, her scholarship focuses on revealing the ways that critical making and technology studies have their historical foundations within communities of working-class women and women of color.
Krystin will attend the 2017 Sisterhood Dinner where the nominees will be honored and the winner will be announced.
