AWARD Innovators Sweep Science Category in Kenya’s 2014 “Top 40 Under 40 Women”

We are proud to congratulate three women from AWARD’s community who were recognized for their remarkable contributions to agricultural science in Africa and its advancement: Dr. Sheila Ommeh, 2009 AWARD Fellow; Dr. Charity Mutegi, AWARD Pilot Program Fellow/Mentor, and Dr. Wanjiru Kamau-Rutenberg, AWARD Director.
For the past six years, Kenya’s Business Daily, the leading regional business publication, has invited readers to nominate Kenyan women under age 40, who in their view have made significant achievements in various segments of society and the economy. These outstanding women have broken the career glass ceiling early and are headed for success. The judges’ choices for 2014 were recently published in a special “Top 40 Under 40” issue. AWARD’s three nominees swept the science category.
