Congratulations to Amy Rydeen!

Amy Rydeen, PhD recently received the 𝐌𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐃𝐢𝐱 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝!

The 𝐌𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐃𝐢𝐱 𝐀𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝 is an esteemed recognition bestowed upon an individual each year who has demonstrated exceptional dedication to nurturing and developing others. This award celebrates those who go above and beyond in their efforts to mentor, guide, and empower their peers, colleagues, or community members. Honorees in this category are not just leaders, but also teachers and role models, having made significant contributions through mentoring, providing growth opportunities, training, and fostering an environment conducive to learning and personal development. ​

It is named after Molly Dix – an individual who epitomized these qualities throughout her time at RTI International.​

Amy’s pivotal role in our team’s growth, marked by high standards and a clear vision for our work, along with her leadership in the Project Lead Community of Practice, has significantly boosted our operations and community spirit. Her dedicated one-on-one mentoring, particularly for early-career staff, and her drive to enhance overall team performance, make her a standout nominee for this award.
