Los Angeles, CA (RPRN) 07/11/12 — (Spanish release at the bottom).

The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, Inc (SHPE) Chief Executive Officer, Pilar Montoya, has been nationally recognized by US STEMconnector™, “100 Women Leaders in STEM,” for her efforts to increase STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) awareness, access, support and leadership development among the Hispanic community. In a recent special reception at the US News STEM Solutions Summit in Dallas, Texas, Ms. Montoya, along with 99 other phenomenal women, was honored and acknowledged for their commitment to advance the cause of encouraging more girls and young women to pursue a STEM career. 

Leading the largest Hispanic STEM organization in the country, Pilar Montoya has grown the SHPE partnerships, chapters and sponsorships to engage over 10,000 members and 318 SHPE chapters throughout the United States. She has helped develop and expand an array of programs including STEM educational activities for K-12th grade students, science programs, “Noches de Ciencias” (Science Night) programs to involve the whole family, presentations for girls to stimulate awareness and interest in the STEM field.

“With the severe shortage of STEM talent in the United States we believe the Hispanic population and SHPE will help meet the demand for quality STEM talent,” explained Montoya. “Hispanics are the largest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States and by engaging Hispanic students and parents early, we can ensure that the U.S. has superior leadership in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to improve our environment, quality of life, education, health and well-being.”

                Pilar Montoya has been the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the SHPE since 2009. She has over 25 years of business and financial management experience for private companies and non-profits. Prior to joining SHPE, Ms. Montoya led expansion efforts for a granting foundation in California.  Ms. Montoya was also the Founder and President of a nationally acclaimed Hispanic Marketing agency with corporate, governmental and non-profit clients.

“Con la falta tan grande en talento STEM dentro de los Estados Unidos, nosotros creemos que la población hispana y SHPE ayudaran a satisfacer la demanda por talento de calidad STEM”, explico Montoya. “Los hispanos son el grupo étnico con más grande crecimiento en los Estados Unidos y al atraer estudiantes y padres hispanos temprano, podemos asegurar que EE.UU. tenga un papel superior de liderazgo en las ciencias, la tecnología, la ingeniería y las matemáticas para mejorar nuestro ambiente, calidad de vida, educación, salud y bienestar”.
