Mentoring Award

AWIS New Jersey Women in STEM Mentoring Award Recipients and Honoree’s Receive Legislative Recognition.

March 29th, 2017

Association for Women in Science recognizes that mentoring impacts not only the direct beneficiaries, but also induces a ripple effect. Our Mentoring Awards are tailored to honor New Jersey Women in STEM who have shown outstanding service as mentors (scope of mentorship may be concentrated in the classroom, laboratory, industry setting or an office). These are women who have significantly impacted and guided STEM colleagues or students to achieve higher targets in life. These mentee’s have subsequently progressed and made impacts in their own fields.

Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, New jersey’s very own Physicist assemblyman  is a strong advocate for increasing women representation in STEM. He recognized some outstanding women in STEM by presenting New Jersey State Resolutions acknowledging their accomplishments.
