FLORHAM PARK – On Monday, March 4th at 7:00 p.m., the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Madison Area Branch will be presenting a complimentary in-person event titled “Encouraging Women and Minorities to Pursue STEM Careers” at the Florham Park Library, located at 107 Ridgedale Avenue, Florham Park.

The featured speaker for the evening will be Cyndi Wilson, a project management professional and a member of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) Board of Visitors for the Women in Engineering Group. Wilson brings a wealth of experience, having been a member of Toastmasters International for 15 years and holding the distinguished title of Distinguished Toastmaster. Within Toastmasters International, she has served in leadership capacities at the club, district, and international levels. Toastmasters International, a nonprofit educational organization, aims to foster confidence and enhance public speaking skills through its global network of both online and in-person clubs.

Wilson is a proud three-time graduate of NJIT, holding a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and two master’s degrees: one in management and another in technology management.

Additionally, she possesses a master’s certificate in commercial project management from George Washington University and a certificate in diversity, equity, and inclusion from Cornell University.

Wilson’s passion for science and technology ignited during elementary school despite the prevalent discouragement toward women and minorities pursuing technical careers. Nonetheless, she remained undeterred, forging ahead to carve out a distinct path for her life.

The Madison Area AAUW actively promotes education through grants, programs designed to introduce teenage girls to STEM fields, monthly programs on various topics, and member-specialized interest groups such as a book club, a mahjong game, and book sales.
