Katehi lauded for pointing way for women, girls

UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi was among 12 women honored last week at the 2012 California STEM Summit for advancing science, technology, engineering and math education initiatives in the state and for being role models for women and girls.

“For our economy to thrive in the future, we need more young women, as well as young men, to have opportunities to study science, engineering and mathematics and pursue careers in these areas,” Katehi said in a UCD news release.

The summit, held this year in San Diego, brings together leaders in business, government, education and nonprofit organizations to work toward increasing the number of women in STEM fields. About 25 percent of such jobs are held by women nationwide.

The National Science Foundation recently awarded Katehi with a grant of nearly $4 million for a program aimed at increasing the participation of women, especially Latinas, in STEM-related academic careers.

Katehi has served on national board and advisory committees on science, engineering and education, including a two-year stint as chair of the National Academy of Engineering’s Committee on K-12 engineering education. She counts 19 patents to her name during her own career as an electrical engineer and has mentored more than 70 postdoctoral fellows.

Other honorees were: Joan Bissell, California State University Chancellor’s Office; Sandra Birmingham, CSU Channel Islands; Rachel Bondi, Creative Artists Agency; Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla, D-Concord; Pamela Clute, UC Riverside; Judy D’Amico, Project Lead the Way; Dawn Garrett, Raytheon; Susan Hackwood, California Council on Science and Technology; Helen Quinn, Stanford University; Carol Tang, Coalition for Science After School; and Nancy Taylor, San Diego Science Alliance.
