Even though all of the WE Local conferences in North America were canceled, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) still recognized several people with WE Local Awards. I was presented with the WE Local 2021 Local ELiTE (Emerging Leader in Engineering and Technology) Award. This award honors engineers who have been actively engaged in an engineering or technology profession and have ten to fifteen years of cumulative engineering experience and consistent SWE involvement including both formal and informal leadership roles.
I am very grateful to everyone who contributed to my nomination for this award and appreciative of the awards committee for recognizing my technical achievements and SWE volunteer contributions so far.
SWE published a complete list of all WE Local 2021 award winners on the All Together Blog. The WE Local 2021 Virtual Awards Hall is also open for anyone to view and leave messages for each award winner.
