Students and New Professionals Leader Highlight: Elizabeth G. Holman, Ph.D., LSW
Elizabeth G. Holman, Ph.D., LSW, is an assistant professor at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and a licensed social worker. She completed her doctorate in human development and family studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. Her personal and professional interests involve supporting marginalized individuals and families. Dr. Holman’s passion for this topic inspired her to run for the Inclusion and Diversity Committee (IDC) Students and New Professionals representative position. The IDC is an NCFR board committee with the goal of meeting the needs of NCFR’s diverse membership and addressing issues of equity within the organization. In this role, Dr. Holman helped organize and lead several conversations about diversity and inclusion at the NCFR 2018 Annual Conference, in addition to serving as a liaison between members and NCFR leadership about issues of inclusion and equity. She is looking forward to continuing her service to NCFR as the newly elected secretary and treasurer for the Feminism and Family Studies Section starting November 2019.
As introduced in the Spring NCFR Report, student and new professional leaders will be highlighted in each issue. If you are a student or new professional looking for ways to get involved with NCFR, please email Andrea Roach at [email protected].
