The New Mexico Network for Women in Science and Engineering (NMNWSE) encourages women to enter into, and develop their careers in, science, engineering, and allied professions through annual technical symposia, outreach, and local chapter activities.

 Who We Are trifold brochure


The NMNWSE IMPACT! Award recognizes NM women for their extraordinary efforts in furthering the goals of the Network: "encouraging women to enter into and development their careers in science, engineering, and allied professions."

  Laura Crossey has been selected as the 2015 IMPACT! Award winner.

Laura is being recognized for her extraordinary 30-year mentoring effort encompassing directly mentoring over 100 undergraduate and graduate student mentees in her own discipline, as well as playing a leading role in local and statewide K-12 through graduate level STEM support programs, served on the NM Governor's committee to establish Science Standards, and helping the University of New Mexico to develop policies and programs that support inclusive participation and success in STEM across the campus improving the college experience for thousands of students, not to mention volunteering her time as a Science Fair Judge, Coach, PTA President, and Soccer referee.
With a special focus on Hispanic and Native American students, Laura brings them into research by finding a project for them near where they grew up. Brandi Cron Kamermans, one of the Native American students Laura mentored, states: "In the last eight years I have become a scientist, and it would not have been possible without Dr. Crossey's support", adding "I saw her do this for many students - each one taking a unique path in their education."

We would also like to thank all who nominated someone and recognize all who were nominated. It makes one proud to learn of the many accomplishments and contributions of these outstanding New Mexico women.
