Congratulations to our board member Sarah Cardozo Duncan for being recognized by the Massachusetts chapter of the Association for Women in Science (Mass AWIS) with an Excellence in Mentoring Award!
Mass AWIS will be commemorating their 10th anniversary and celebrating Sarah’s track record in mentoring women in STEM on September 20, 2014 during a special luncheon.
MASS AWIS established a Mentoring Circle that has nurtured and created connections between hundreds of women in the Boston area and beyond. We are grateful that their leaders have lent their expertise to help us start our Professional Mentoring Program in 2012, and MASS AWIS members have continued to be mentors to emerging leaders in STEM–our college and graduate student volunteers. Members have also been speakers for our teen girls, and participated in many other outreach events.
Congratulations and thank you, Sarah and MASS AWIS for the important work you to do encourage women in STEM! We are proud to be affiliated with you!
