Livas-Stein is Recipient of the Dean’s Award for Diversity and Inclusiveness
Dr. Gaby Livas-Stein
has been selected to receive the Dean’s Award for the Promotion of Diversity and Inclusiveness in the College of Arts and Science.
Gaby’s dedication to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) spans the entire length of her career and encompasses contributions at all levels, from within the department and university, across the state of North Carolina, and at the national and international levels.
At the state level, she has provided trainings to mental health providers concerning the delivery of services to the Latinx community. She also advocates for the Latinx community; for example, she was invited to speak with the Governor’s Council on Hispanic/Latino Affairs to provide information on the deportation crisis.
The award consists of a plaque and a $1,000 prize to be used to further advance diversity initiatives. Gaby will also give
a public presentation on her efforts to share and promote such practices throughout the College.
