The Flora Stone Mather Center for Women is pleased to announce the return of Heather Clayton Terry to the position of Associate Director of Women in Science & Engineering. Heather held this position from January 2012 to August 2014. During her interim, she worked as the Director of Youth Programs at NewBridge Cleveland Center for Arts & Technology, an afterschool nonprofit program.
Heather said it best when she shared, “I missed the dynamic and meaningful work I did to support and retain undergraduate women from all walks of life in the sciences.” As a result of her return, she will continue to act as student advisor for the Women in Science & Engineering Roundtable (WISER), a student group for women in STEMM.
Heather oversees a multitude of programs dedicated to leadership, mentorship and outreach programs as well as advising students who are in need of one on one support. Over a thousand women have participated in the WISER program since its inception.
