Every year, the Women in Technology Leadership Awards recognize and honor female leaders whose achievements, mentorship and contributions to the community align with the WIT mission of advancing women in technology from the classroom to the boardroom. These are highly successful women who have made mentoring the next generation of leaders in technology a significant component of their own success.
Typical nominees for the Leadership Awards work in a technology role or for a technology company where they accelerate at leadership and innovation. In addition they stimulate professional growth of those they manage or mentor through their actions and encouragement. Nomination categories offer many opportunities to highlight the outstanding capabilities and accomplishments of women from large and small public and private organizations, demonstrating social impact, being a stellar contributor to WIT and others.

Her vision is to make Australia the world leader in saliva-based technology through the establishment of a research centre. My research is highly commercial, aiming to improve outcomes for HNC patients while delivering equitable healthcare to all Australians including the first nations people. Associate Professor Chamindie Punyadeera is a leading advocate for women in STEMM, and by challenging the status quo, her goal is to help make QUT continue to be a leading institute for empowering women in STEMM.
However, it has been found that globally, in tertiary education, only 18% of the girls pursue science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) studies compared to 35% of boys. This leads to women constituting a modest 28% of the STEAM workforce.

The Women in Thyroidology Program and Business meeting held early Thursday morning was well attended with a bountiful breakfast supported by the ATA. Our past president, Dr. Whitney Goldner, gave a concise update on the current state of Women in Thyroidology, and chaired a program and panel discussion entitled \"Making Critical Work and Life Transitions\", which stimulated a lot of enthusiastic discussion and provided helpful resources and suggestions. The panel members were Dr. Elizabeth Pearce, Dr. Aime Franco, and Dr. Spyridoula Maraka. A big \"Thank You\" to the ATA leadership, and Bobbi, Carrie, Sharleene, to make this possible.
We would like to congratulate Dr. Elizabeth Pearce, the 7th recipient of the Woman of the Year. She is Professor of Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine. She has been an ATA member since the year 2000 and has made significant contributions to fulfill ATA mission in many ways. She was the 2011 recipient of ATA Van Meter Award and is currently the ATA President. For the coming year, we will continue our mission to (1) recruit and retain more women ATA members, (2) increase women's visibility within the ATA by nominating women for awards and leadership positions, (3) better address women's thyroid health topics, and (4) engage women in technology to promote professional and personal interaction. Specific focus will be on creating networking platforms to share experiences, information, and resources that are pertinent for women to succeed in their career advancement and personal goals. Furthermore, we would like to continue to encourage our colleagues to nominate women for ATA leadership positions and awards. The Call for Nominations for ATA Awards and Board of Directors is now open through March 31, 2019.

Grene was interested in philosophy when she started college in 1927 at Wellesley, but majored in zoology with a minor in English. She went to Germany as an exchange student, where she attended lectures of Heidegger and Jaspers. She came home in 1933, the year Hitler came to power, and earned a Ph.D. at Radcliffe, \"as close as women got to Harvard in those days,\" she said. She enjoyed teaching the history of philosophy, but her appointment at the University of Chicago was not renewed during the war. She moved to Ireland with her then husband, where she helped farm and raised a family. She taught for five years at Queen's University, Belfast, and then came back to the States, to the University of California at Davis. Richard Burian, a professor of philosophy at Virginia Tech who describes Grene's career as \"remarkable,\" said Grene overcame the difficulties of being a woman in a man's profession because she \"came in as a curious outsider and found a way to produce serious criticisms that had a serious impact in the fields\" about which she wrote. \"She finds a way to activate people in interesting ways.\" 076b4e4f54
