Metis CEO Joy Colucci was recognized with two awards this month. Dr. Colucci was an honoree of New Mexico Technology Council’s Women in Technology awards. The council is a member-driven association of businesses, organizations and tech professionals working together to promote the growth and success of New Mexico’s technology business sectors. Promoting the inclusion of women in STEM fields is a core goal of the organization, which they support through scholarships, outreach and recognition of women in STEM fields.

The US Women’s Chamber of Commerce (USWCC) is a nation-wide organization helping women start and build successful businesses and careers, gain access to government contracts, grow as leaders and prepare for a secure retirement. We work to advance government policies that underpin Women’s Economic Priorities — a positive economic environment with policies, budgets and leadership that support women as students, workers, mothers, breadwinners, caregivers, business owners, retirees and policy leaders. USWCC recognized Dr. Colucci with their 2018 Stellar award for achieving outstanding success as a supplier in the federal contracting arena.
