The NEWIEE Awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishment of women leaders in the fields of energy and environment who have achieved professional excellence within their area of specialty and have actively paved the way to success for other women in similar or related professional areas.
In addition to other benefits, the reception and sustaining sponsors all receive a full-page ad in the Gala Program. This year, the ad will ALSO be displayed in our March 14th Newsletter. Be sure to get your ads in early to be included!
NEWIEE is continuing its popular series of on-campus chats for the spring semester – a chance for NEWIEE members to share their experience with young women and talk about careers in energy and the environment. We can transform our field, just by showing young women they are welcome!
