Jenny Gristock – a woman of outstanding achievement

Anyone who does not know what Dr Jenny Gristock, ABSW member and "science policy wonk," looks like can see photos of her plastered around the Wellcome Collection on the Euston Road. Jenny is one of this year's "Women of Outstanding Achievement". This means that she features in the Women of Outstanding Achievement Photographic Exhibition "featuring portraits of the six pioneering females chosen".

The details of the event tell us that Jenny is one of two women honoured for "communication of SET with a contribution to society". SET is, of course, science engineering and technology.

The awards come from the UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology. The Women of Outstanding Achievement Photographic Exhibition has been going for four year and is "designed to profile pioneering women in SET as role models in a sector in which females are highly under-represented".
