Carmen Sidbury, director of UNCW’s Center for Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, has been named an honorary chair for Million Women Mentors – North Carolina. MWM is a national movement to encourage girls and young women to pursue STEM careers. The organization is active in 35 states, with more than 45 corporate partnerships serving over 30 million girls. Dr. Sidbury joins North Carolina Representative Graig Meyer as an honorary chair of MWM–NC. The appointment was announced in January.

Sidbury was selected for her vision and leadership in academia, entrepreneurship, and advocacy for STEM education.

“People at UNCW and our partners who have met Carmen know what an incredible colleague and resource she has become in a short amount of time with us,” said Watson College Dean Van Dempsey. “The MWM appointment is reflective of who Carmen is as a leader, an educator and an advocate. She is going to be a great champion for STEM for girls and young women.”
