Engility said Tuesday that Dugle will formally receive recognition on September 19 at Girlstart’s annual Game Changers luncheon at the Junior League of Houston in Texas.
The company will also sponsor a table at the luncheon for 10 Girlstart participants of middle-school age who are attending with a chaperone.
Tamara Hudgins, executive director of Girlstart, said Dugle has achieved a high degree of recognition in the technology and government service sectors in addition to serving as an inspiration for girls to enter STEM industries.
Hudgins added that Girlstart is “impressed with her passion for activities and causes that support female leadership, science and education.”
Funds from the Game Changers event will support Girlstart’s programs including free after-school programs, which have helped 2,700 girls at 69 high-need Texas schools to date.
Girlstart aims to encourage girls in taking up STEM-related fields and recognizes selected women each year for their contributions to the STEM domain and for promoting female empowerment in STEM.
