Amanda Joyce Selected as the 2022 SCSW Founders Award Recipient
Group Leader, Strategic Cybersecurity Analysis & Research
Please join Argonne’s Women in Science & Technology (WIST) program in congratulating Amanda Joyce on being selected as the recipient of the 2022 Science Careers in Search of Women (SCSW) Founders Award! Established in 2007, this award honors individuals who have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to mentoring women and to advancing women leadership and career opportunities in the sciences and engineering, because “the future depends on what we do in the present” (Gandhi).
Amanda has been a part of the Argonne community for over 10 years, and throughout her time, she has continuously demonstrated her commitment to the advancement of women in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM fields) . She has been a member of the WIST community for many years and for the past three years, Amanda has served as Co-Chair for Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (IGED); an event focused on inspiring 8th grade girls to consider a future in STEAM. Her outreach for this event included hundreds of girls across the U.S., especially with the latest versions taking place virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Amanda’s positive energy is contagious, and her mentorship and leadership skills are invaluable in motivating girls and young women to pursue and persevere in STEAM careers. Through her extraordinary effort, Amanda models Argonne’s Core Values (Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, & Teamwork) and advances the mission of the WIST Program. Amanda, thank you for being an approachable role model to the future women leaders in STEAM.
