GSEP Professor Named One of 40 Women to Watch Over 40 in 2013

Dr. AnnMaria De MarsAdjunct Professor Dr. AnnMaria De Mars was recently named one of 40 Women to Watch Over 40 in 2013. 

Forty Women to Watch over 40 was created by Christina Vuleta and Whitney Johnson to bring awareness to the reality that innovation gets even better with age. Vuleta, the founder of women’s mentoring platform 40:20 Vision, and Johnson, author of Dare, Dream, Do, formed the list to emphasize the accomplishments and diverse backgrounds of women who are making major professional contributions after the age of 40.

Candidates were measured by a panel of judges according to three criteria: having created growth in a given field and shown future potential, having “gone beyond traditional mentoring” to create new pathways, and having reinvented themselves after 40. Over a thousand women applied to be on the list.

In addition to her teaching for the EDOL program, Dr. De Mars is president of The Julia Group which provides on-line education in statistics, mathematics and disability issues.
