Williamson’s UW-Madison Academic Staff award featured in UW News

UW Collaborative for Reproductive Equity Associate Director Amy Williamson, MPP, received the 2023 UW–Madison Robert and Carroll Heideman Award for Excellence in Public Service and Outreach! A recent article published by UW-Madison News outlines Williamson’s statewide outreach efforts that helped earn the award:

“She has produced many evidence-based policy briefs (such as Roe v. Wade‘s Fall: Consequences for Wisconsin) and serves on statewide reproductive health workgroups, all while overseeing CORE’s day-to-day operations and its deep portfolio of research projects.

Williamson also works closely with faculty from across campus and the UW System to help translate and disseminate their research. And she does it all with what colleagues call her “special sauce” — warmth, a can-do attitude and a service mindset.”

The Heideman Award for Excellence in Public Service and Outreach is one of the campus-wide Academic Staff Excellence Awards chosen by the UW Academic Staff Assembly’s Professional Development and Recognition Committee. Amy will be honored at a reception on Monday, April 24 and recognized at the May 8, 2023 Academic Staff Assembly Meeting.
