Award Recipients

About the Awards
For more than 20 years, the Women of Color STEM conference has recognized the achievement of women in science, technology, engineering, and math careers. These prestigious awards have earned widespread praise for offering unique opportunities for women to parlay their career successes into gains for themselves and the STEM community as a whole. The Women of Color awards advance the conference’s mission to recognize excellence as a means for sustaining and growing the STEM pipeline.

We offer two award levels – our peer-reviewed award (PR) and our outstanding achievement award (OAA). Peer-reviewed awards are subject to competitive review processes, and outstanding achievement awards are based on employer recommendations.
