Robina Goodlad Excellence Award for Women Achievers in Housing
The finalists are:
Lesley Baird, Tenant Participation Advisory Service
Lorraine Usher, Loreburn Housing Association
Allyson Allison, Stirling Council - WINNER!
The award is in its eleventh year and was set up in recognition of the late Robina Goodlad, a Professor of Housing and Urban Studies at the University of Glasgow and Co-Director of the Scottish Centre for Research on Social Justice from 1998 until her death in 2005.
The award is aimed at women who have broken new ground or made a significant contribution to housing in Scotland and those who have helped, or are helping others, to achieve their goals and make a difference to their communities.
The judging panel will be looking for ways which the nominee has:
• Made innovative change - with examples of this
• Moved beyond established practice and succeeded by doing things differently
• Gone beyond the requirements of their role (particularly where the candidate is in a paid role)
• Helped to remove barriers, open up opportunities for others, set a new pathway or promoted a social justice through their achievements
The winner will be announced and the award presented at the CIH Scotland Excellence Awards Dinner on Friday 11 November 2016. The winner will receive a trophy (to be returned after one year) and a commemorative certificate.
