So honored to receive the award on National Grid’s behalf. Had I known how many strong female role models were going to be there, I would have brought my 7-year old daughter!

I was so happy to read this article! What a wonderful recognition. Congrats to all those who made this happen. As the affirmative action officer for the company, it does my heart good to see this. Creating the future! Hopefully many of the Northeastern University SWE members will apply and be selected for jobs at National Grid.
