Florida Tech will recognize four individuals - a student, an alumna, a staff member, and a faculty member -  who embody the spirit of promoting women’s participation and development within the Florida Tech community.

Nominees will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Earns the respect of community and colleagues as a role model/mentor for other women and girls
  • Acts as a leader in their field of expertise and reinforces practices that emphasize inclusion and equality
  • Invests in their personal, professional development through networking, mentoring, education, etc.
  • Embodies the spirit of promoting women’s participation and development

These awards were inspired by Joan Bixby, Florida Tech alumna and former university administrator. Bixby, who earned a Florida Tech master’s degree in contract and procurement management in 1975, started her university career as a development director in 1965, and remained an active member of the university community until her death in December 2011.

The next award ceremony will be hosted by the Florida Tech Alumni Association on March 31, 2020, during Women's History Month.
