The National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering has announced  Michele Lezama as president and chief executive officer, effective March 26, 2018.  Lezama has worked in advancing minority communities in engineering with organizations such as GEM and NSBE prior to joining the NACME team.

With The National GEM Consortium, Michele Lezama served as CEO and executive director, pushing the organization to pursue their goals which are dedicated to increasing the number of underrepresented individuals pursuing and receiving advanced degrees in engineering, computer science and other STEM fields.  In this position, Lezama moved the headquarters from Indiana to Washington D.C., strategically placing GEM for advancement.

While serving as executive director of the National Society of Black Engineers or, NSBE, Lezama also achieved great success. NSBE works to increase the number of culturally responsible black engineers who excel academically, impact their community and achieve professionally.  Lezama is credited with taking NSBE and turning around the group’s financial position and creating a long-term investment structure. She received a Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring from the White House Office of Science and Technology.

“I am honored and humbled to have been selected as NACME’s President and CEO. As a proud NACME Scholar Alum, I am excited to work with the NACME team to dramatically increase the number of high performing students who gain access to our nation’s most rigorous engineering and computer science undergraduate programs, to deliver exceptional outcomes for our university and corporate partners and to actively showcase the opportunities and successes of our nation’s diverse STEM community.” says Lezama in an official statement.

The NACME team is just as excited to have her on board.

“NACME is delighted to have Michele join the organization as president and CEO,” said Ray Dempsey, NACME board chairman. “Her transformational leadership style, and history of dedication and support of access to education for underrepresented minorities, is a great fit for NACME.”
