Robert Smith says
This notice in Today at Berkeley Lab and the linked website should have said how these women were chosen for these awards out of all the women who work at LBNL. Did they have to write essays? Submit resumes? Were they interviewed? Who were the judges? What were the criteria? In other words, make this a complete news story.
Also, the abbreviation STEM is not explained in the notice or on the website.

Thanks for your feedback. We’ve added more information above about the nomination process, and spelled out the “STEM” acronym.
