Amy Halloran, senior manager in renewable energy, was recently honored with the annual Women in Technology award by the New Mexico Technology Council.

The council gives the award annually to outstanding women making a difference in science, technology, engineering and math fields in the state. Amy, who has a master’s in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Illinois, was recognized specifically for her work mentoring numerous professional women who work in STEM fields in program management.

All Women in Technology honorees have found ways to give back to their communities and mentor other women along the way, according to the council. Throughout her 30-year career, Amy has actively mentored and advocated for women in tech fields. At Sandia, she has actively recruited, hired and mentored numerous technical women into the Labs, the council added.
