NACME Board Member Honored by Manufacturing Leadership Council

Dow’s Susan Lewis Honored for “Next Generation Leadership”


White Plains, N.Y. – The National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, Inc. (NACME), would like to congratulate Board Director Susan Lewis, the Global Leader of Operations for Dow AgroSciences, on being named as an individual winner in the 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Awards.

Lewis was selected by an expert panel of judges in the annual competition sponsored by the Manufacturing Leadership Council. She is one of just two honorees in the Next Generation Leadership category.

“Susan Lewis is an outstanding board director and a champion for diversity with equity in engineering education and careers,” said Dr. Irving Pressley McPhail, NACME president and Chief Executive Officer. “Susan understands and backs NACME’s central idea, competitive strategy, and execution plan. She has been a leader in expanding the boundaries for board company engagement with NACME across our continuum of programs.”

“Susan's commitment to exceptional operational and business performance is contagious,” said Peter Holicki, corporate vice president of Manufacturing and Engineering and Environment, Health & Safety Operations. “She has also demonstrated extensive leadership outside of Dow, as an EH&S champion, an ambassador for engineering and diversity, and an involved community member. We are proud of her accomplishments and how they reflect on the Operations team.”



Since 1974, NACME has provided leadership and support for the national effort to increase the number of successful African American, American Indian, and Latino young women and men in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and careers. With funding from corporate and individual donors, NACME has supported over 24,000 students with more than $124 million in scholarships and other support. Currently, NACME provides scholarship support for approximately 1,250 college engineering students through a national network of 51 NACME Partner Universities.
