Jan Frigo selected as 2014 IMPACT! Award Winner

The NMNWSE IMPACT! Award is presented annually at our Annual Meeting to a New Mexico woman for her extraordinary efforts in furthering the goals of the Network: to encourage women to enter into and develop their careers in science, engineering, and allied professions.

Jan is being recognized for her extraordinary mentoring and networking contributions over the past 16 years as an ambassador, advocate, mentor, and leader in the STEM professions. She galvanizes kids' interest in robotics, works arduously to close the gender gap in STEM fields through organizing and leading workshops in the northern NM Expanding Your Horizons (NNM EYH), professionally mentors students and junior professionals in computer science and engineering, and also finds time to network with and do STEM outreach to women and minority small business start-ups in New Mexico.
