Dr. Trina Fletcher was recently awarded the 2022 WEPAN (Women in Engineering ProActive Network) Educator’s Award for excellence and innovation in STEM education work for girls and/or women at the collegiate level.

WEPAN Awards honor key individuals, programs, and organizations for accomplishments that underscore WEPAN’s mission to advance cultures of inclusion and diversity in engineering education and professions. WEPAN Award honorees demonstrate extraordinary service, significant achievement, model programs, and exemplary work environments.

Dr. Fletcher was recognized for: her extensive experience across industry, the nonprofit sector and academia when it comes to underrepresented minorities and women in engineering and computing education. Her research areas include diversity, equity and inclusion within K-12 STEM education and the role of historically black colleges and universities on the production of Blacks in STEM. She is currently a steering committee member for EngineerGirl, an initiative by the National Academy of Engineering to increase the number of girls going into engineering. She is also an associate editor for the Journal for Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering.
