Women@NASA Spotlight

Are you an employee, contractor or civil servant, of NASA? Do you know a woman at NASA who deserves to be recognized? Perhaps you think she has contributed to NASA’s mission directly. Or maybe she’s been a key point of contact in advancing a new technological project. She could be an engineer who has magnetic leadership capabilities. Or maybe you think the woman next to you is amazing because somehow she seems so put together each day? You wonder if she is balancing everything you are, and the thought of this possibility impresses you.

Women@NASA is thrilled to open up a peer-nominated spotlight for our own employees. It’s your chance to congratulate a colleague on a job well done, no matter how thankless a task seems or how humble she is to think “it’s my job” to do it. So go ahead-read on and nominate!
