2021 Diversity, Inclusivity and Equal Employment Opportunity Award


WiSTEM is recognized for fostering an inclusive work environment and professional development opportunities for the NIST community at all career and educational levels across NIST. The WiSTEM team has led a volunteer organization that has worked tirelessly on behalf of NIST staff by creating professional and personal development opportunities in a range of formats – from the WiSTEM Career Empowerment Summit to flash mentoring events to NIST viewing of the film "Picture a Scientist." These events have fostered conversations across NIST about how to make NIST a more inclusive environment for all staff.
