Ashley Huderson

Dr. Huderson is a native of New Orleans, LA, and completed her undergraduate training at Spelman College (2006), a certificate in Health Policy (2012) and doctoral work at Meharry Medical College (2013). Her post-doctoral work included a fellowship at Georgetown University Lombardi Cancer Center’s Office of Health Disparities and Minority Research (2015). During her two years at Georgetown University her interest in exposing and helping minority students navigate their STEM careers flourished as she accepted her first adjunct position, affording her the opportunity to teach and advise undergraduate and graduate level students. It was during this time that she decided to turn her sights completely to diversity and inclusion issues within STEM education and embark on a career that would allow her to make a meaningful contribution on diversifying the scientific workforce and empowering those interested in STEM, regardless of their background. Dr. Huderson was a 2015-2017 American Association for the Advancement of Science, Science and Technology Policy (AAAS S&T) Fellow in the Engineering Education and Centers’ division (EEC) at the National Science Foundation, where she provided leadership on developing, coordinating, and implementing support for programs that foster an inclusive climate for pre-collegiate and collegiate STEM students. Currently Dr. Huderson serves as the Manager of Engineering Education at the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, where she is responsible for advancing and managing the research, development, promotion, implementation, and assessment of products and services that will help colleges of engineering develop their curricula and faculty. She also manages all ASME/ABET operational activities, annual program evaluator selection and assignment to ABET accreditation visits, and ASME evaluator recruitment, selection, training, and evaluation.
