UWIN PI, Amy Orsborn, an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington, was awarded a “Changing the Face of STEM” grant by L’Oréal USA. The grant supports former L’Oréal “For Women in Science” fellows to inspire future generations of girls and women in STEM.
Dr. Orsborn will be using her first CTFS grant to support her mentorship organization that promotes Women In Neural Engineering (WINE). WINE looks to provide vital peer‐to‐peer mentorship and networking for women in neural engineering. The group’s initial efforts center on women at the faculty level, as this career stage represents a key bottleneck towards inclusive STEM leadership. The CTFS grant will help WINE provide mentorship and outreach across the training pipeline.
More information on the award, and the other ten awardees can be found in the L’Oréal press release.
