Helmlinger Wins 2003 Equity for Women Award


The North Carolina State University Council on the Status of Women (CSW) has named Teresa Helmlinger, assistant vice chancellor of extension and engagement and executive director of Industrial Extension Services (IES), the winner of the 2003 Equity for Women Award.

This annual award is given in recognition of outstanding voluntary or job-related service toward the goal of equity for women on the NC State campus. Helmlinger joins Drs. Nash Winstead, Barbara Rissman, Thomas Stafford and Frances Graham in winning the award, which was created in 1990.

Helmlinger holds her bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from NC State. She earned an MBA from Duke University, where she was a Fuqua Scholar. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in public administration at NC State.

Active in the Professional Engineers of North Carolina, Helmlinger was named their Young Engineer of the Year in 1986. She is also the incoming president of the National Society of Professional Engineers, the first woman to hold this position in the 68-year history of the organization.

Helmlinger was cited for increasing the number of women managers in NC State’s IES, working to rectify salary inequities for women in the department and fostering leadership potential in women in both IES and in the engineering profession.

Dr. Robert A. Barnhardt, interim provost, presented the award at the recent Women’s Professional Development Conference on campus.
