The Network, in cooperation with the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women, in 2007 embarked upon a new means to recognize the contributions of women in New Mexico. The IMPACT! Award strives to celebrate a New Mexico woman for her achievements and contributions in furthering the goals of the Network:

to encourage women to enter into and develop their careers in science, engineering, and allied professions.

Merecedes Agogino is the winner of the 2017 IMPACT! Award

It is with great pride and pleasure that the New Mexico Network for Women in Science and Engineering is presenting a 2017 IMPACT! Award to Dr. Mercedes Agogino. She truly merits this award for her extraordinary career and efforts in furthering the Network’s goals of encouraging women to enter into science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and allied professions (STEM-AP). Her lifelong passion and desire to increase the role of women in these fields through support of students in middle school through college is awe-inspiring and deserves to be celebrated.

Please join us for the IMPACT! Award celebration!

Mercedes has been a trailblazer for women, for STEM-AP, and for all underrepresented groups in New Mexico! As a long-time member of the Network, she has participated in many of our efforts over the years. She served as our State Science Fair Awards coordinator for many years. Mercedes enabled us to reward and encourage well over 200 students during this time at both the middle school and high school levels. We are very excited to hold this event in her honor and share her remarkable life and career.

If you can attend, please RSVP to Jeanne Banks at Jeanne.Banks [at] comcast.net or 505-239-2403 by June 14. If you are unable to attend but would like to send a card or congratulatory message to Mercedes, you may either use the email above or mail in care of Jeanne Banks, 14 Leah Lane, Placitas, NM 87043.
