Roamer’s long-time educational adviser receives prestigious award
The National Association of Multicultural Engineering Program Advocates (NAMEPA) honoured Dr Lowenstein for her efforts to promote equitable education with their “2016 Wings to Succeed Award”. Ronnie’s tireless efforts in advising and encouraging Roamer’s development is one example of her contribution.
The award was presented by Mrs. Virginia Womack, Executive Director of NAMEPA to Dr. Lowenstein in recognition of her lifelong commitment to future-focused equity programs that foster the innovation capacity of America.
Mrs. Womack’s remarks spotlighted the alignment of NAMEPA’s mission and outreach strategies to Dr Lowenstein’s professional career spanning research, policy and practice. She specifically cited Dr Lowenstein’s support of the annual STEM on the Hill program co-directed by The Alliance of Science, Technology, Research in America’s executive director, Dr. Robert Boege; her expertise in fostering private-public partnerships to empower traditionally-underserved communities; and her dedication to cultivating NetGeneration of Youth as civically-engaged, STEM-enabled Learners and Leaders. The NAMEPA Wings to Succeed award was established to honour individuals or teams who have catalysed change that helps students from historically underrepresented minority (URM) populations overcome historic barriers of access to and success in engineering career pathways.
