Professor Nicolette Little (aka The English Mechanic) has been awarded a United Way GenNext Top 20 Under 40 award. According to the Oakville Chamber of Commerce’s The Business Advocate Online, “[t]he 2nd annual awards night took place in April to honour individuals who have given back to the community through volunteering, giving, or active engagement in a cause. Nicolette has been a strong voice in the fight against violence against women both at Sheridan College and Peel and Halton shelters, and Halton Women’s Place in particular.” Nicolette, who was offered an Ontario Graduate Scholarship to pursue her PhD studies in Gender, Feminist, & Women’s Studies at York University, helps organize and spearhead Oakville’s annual Hope in High Heels event and FHASS’s Holiday Hamper Drive for the Halton Women’s Place. She will be starting her PhD in the joint York/Ryerson Communication and Culture program in September. Congratulations, Nicolette, on this well-deserved recognition.
