Overview:

This award was inspired by the generosity of Ms. Anne Wolven Garrett, one of the early leaders in the field of toxicology.Ms. Wolven Garrett was one of the first women active in the Society's leadership. Beginning in the early 1970s, she served on several elected and appointed committees, as Historian, and as Vice President and President of a Regional Chapter.

As noted during her memorial service in 2012, she was especially proud of her work with the Society. She was known for taking budding toxicologists under her wing and ended many conversations with “hug yourself; you are very special.” As a tribute to Ms. Wolven Garrett and all past and future female leaders of SOT, the Celebrating Women in Toxicology Award will recognize and encourage women who are in the early stages of developing their careers in the field of toxicology.

This award shall be given to female SOT student member(s) engaged in academic study towards a Bachelor's, Master's or PhD in toxicology (or related field) and/or SOT post-doctoral fellow member(s) engaged in research activities in the field of toxicology (or related field) and who are also members of the WIT SIG.
