Clementina Saduwa was a tireless and extremely effective volunteer student leader a few years back, when the IEEE Nigeria Section was being revived, and she went on to become the first ever IEEE Region 8 Women In Engineering (WIE) Coordinator. In January 2007, She was killed in a random act of violence and left behind her husband and young daughter. She was 29 years old.
To honour her rule and work throughout the years, IEEE Women In Engineering and IEEE Region 8 have named the award for the recognition of women engineer in Region 8 who, through their engineering and career achievements, has demonstrated noteworthy support for women in the profession and has established a benchmark of engineering excellence.
Though she’s moved on, her legacy remains, undaunted!
2015 winner of the Clementina Saduwa Award is Dr Batool Nazre (from the IEEE Sweden Section)
