The Inclusivity in HP Award is a new award intended to be given annually by the Women in Radiation Protection Section to a member of the HPS who, in the past year, has made significant efforts in widening participation and promoting inclusion within health physics and related disciplines. Such efforts might include (but are not limited to) (1) improving the experience, involvement, and/or development of underrepresented persons and/or (2) fostering attitudes, relationships, or environments that are welcoming and accessible to all. Nominees may be at any career stage, and self-nominations are encouraged.
