Type Formal dinner

Inaugurated 2006

The Women's Career Achievement Dinner is an annual event organized by the Women's Center and the RIT Leadership Institute & Community Service Center.

The banquet was created to honor RIT alumnae who have been particularly successful in their careers after graduation, and to honor faculty members who have made gender diversity a priority even when it is not an essential part of their jobs. As of 2010, it is also the venue through which the Leadership Institute distributes the Women's Leadership certificates to those who have completed the certificate program.
