Margaret Ashida STEM Leadership Service Award
Margaret was an outstanding woman who created a wave of change with her tireless efforts to create connections between business/industry and STEM educational leaders in colleges and the K-12 sector, not only here in New York State, but across America. She was a “thought leader” often creating ideas and connections between and among educators and business/industry to further the implementation of pathways for developing America’s STEM workforce. Through her advocacy, the NYS State STEM Hubs were created, pulling together New York communities in unique ways to foster the development of STEM career pathways.
The Margaret Ashida STEM Leadership Award seeks to honor persons who are making significant STEM connections within their community through their time, actions, talents and dedication. The honorees selected serve as a role model for STEM Leadership as they are striving to enhance the STEM workforce through their connections between business/industry and STEM educational leaders.
