UD alumna Quinetta Roberson urges women to make five promises to themselves: Have a presence, use your voice, craft your own narrative, seize opportunities, make use of resources.

UD alumna Quinetta Roberson urges women to make five promises to themselves: Have a presence, use your voice, craft your own narrative, seize opportunities, and make use of resources.

Two students serving as public administration fellows at the Institute for Public Administration (IPA) were recognized for their efforts in working to advance the status of women on campus.

Natalie Criscenzo (MPA '19) and Kelly James (4+1 B.A./MPA '20 candidate) were among the many award recipients that were celebrated at the annual Women of Promise dinner on Wednesday, March 14th.

UD alumna Quinetta Roberson delivered the evenings keynote address and awards were presented.

UD President Dennis Assanis discussed some of the iconic women in UD history, including Winifred Robinson, who helped establish UDs Womens College in 1914 and served as its first president.

Our society and indeed the University of Delaware would not be the place it is without all these great women of promise, Assanis said. We are so fortunate to be celebrating womens month and their contributions now.

Interim Provost Robin Morgan said she has always found this dinner to be special, in part because students are invited to share in the experience with faculty and staff.

Without a doubt, the best part of being at this dinner is being able to invite a student or students - if youre bold - to come with you because those are really special relationships and its really fun, Morgan said. Thanks to all the women faculty who have invited women of promise and those of you who are invitees and who are here, realize you were chosen to come.

UD Vice Provost for Diversity Carol Henderson spoke to the crowd and introduced the dance group Women of Consequence, who performed an abridged version of their program. Henderson announced the winners of the E. Arthur Trabant Award for Womens Equity, the Mae Carter Award and the Bessie Collins Award. Henderson also shared a poem by Tia Sparkles Singh, which has this key stanza: Be strong. Be Confident. Be you.

The keynote speaker at the Women of Promise dinner often offers advice for the women in the room. Quinetta Roberson, who is a professor in Villanovas business school and researches organizational behavior and diversifying work teams, graduated from UD with a degree in finance and accounting. She told the audience she was inspired by a person who told her she would only be successful if she became an engineer. Her experience and research suggests otherwise, Roberson said.

Roberson urged the women to make five promises to themselves, based on her findings of factors that often hinder womens success. Her suggestions were:

  • Have a presence

  • Use your voice

  • Craft your own narrative

  • Seize opportunities

  • Make use of resources

When people tell you, You cant, and things like that, it's really not about you, Roberson said. Its about them. Its their own limits of vision. What they couldnt see. What they didnt do. We cant let that define us. We need to deliver on what we say were going to do, these promises, and I can tell you that they do work.

The E. Arthur Trabant Award for Womens Equity is given annually to any individual, department, administrative unit, or committee that has contributed to equity for women at the University.

The scholarship is awarded to a female undergraduate student at the University who carries the values that Mae Carter has represented to the University community of women. The award highlights someone who continuously works to advance the status of women on campus.

This award was established to honor the former Dean of Women, Bessie B. Collins, an early advocate and supporter of continuing education for women. The award serves to continue that support and encouragement of women students and to recognize the variety of perspectives, diversity, and richness adult students bring to the University community.

About Women of Promise

Through the years, Women of Promise has recognized exceptional female students at the University of Delaware. Women on UDs faculty nominate both undergraduate and graduate students for this award. Each year a dinner is also held to celebrate and promote positive mentoring relationship between female faculty and the students they nominate. The event is organized by the Vice Provost for Diversity office.
