Mary Fraley, Gretchen Hein, and Amy Monte Selected as Positive Female Role Models

EF-positive-female-role-model-2The Center for Diversity and Inclusion conducted an anonymous survey of female students, staff, and faculty at Michigan Tech during the fall 2016 semester. Over 250 responses identified 98 individuals across campus as positive female role models. Three Engineering Fundamentals women were named in this group: Gretchen Hein, Amy Monte, and Mary Fraley (photo left to right).

Congratulations to the three of them for being recognized for this honor!
