Engineering Ceramics Division Jubilee Global Diversity Award
Each year, three early/mid-career women and minority professionals are selected for the Engineering Ceramics Division’s Jubilee Global Diversity Award and are invited to present at the International Conference and Exposition on Advanced Ceramics and Composites in Daytona Beach, Florida (annual meeting of the Division). The awardees are encouraged to mentor students and promote society-related activities at their institutions.
This award recognizes exceptional early- to mid-career professionals who are women and/or underrepresented minorities (based on race, ethnicity, nationality and/or geographic location) in the area of ceramic science and engineering.
