As part of Tulane’s ongoing commitment to recognizing excellence and outstanding leadership, the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion held its EDI Awards Ceremony on Jan. 19 at the New Orleans Lakefront Airport. The event recognized and celebrated the remarkable commitment shown by members of the Tulane community toward creating an inclusive environment at the university.
The awards were established to highlight the work being done to make every Tulanian feel valued and included, and the ceremony honored many recipients across five categories. Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Anneliese Singh said each recipient played an important role in advancing a more inclusive and welcoming environment at Tulane and beyond.
“We are here tonight to uplift the champions of EDI at Tulane,” Singh said.
President Michael A. Fitts congratulated the recipients in a recorded message and noted what these awards signify for Tulane — a continuation of the university’s achievements.
“[All of the accomplishments we’ve achieved together] play a significant role in fostering an environment of academic excellence, and support our efforts in a variety of areas: from research, to admission, to athletics, to capital projects. All of these efforts rely on the contributions of our staff, students, faculty and community partners,” he said.
