Congratulations to CFS alumna, Dr. Nicole Nieto, who was named one of the Glass Breakers of 2019 by the President & Provost's Council on Women! Glass Breakers shines a spotlight on successful women at Ohio State who have made extraordinary achievements and use those accomplishments to improve workplace culture and uplift women across the university. Each year since 2015, the President and Provost’s Council on Women has recognized a group of women as Ohio State Glass Breakers. 

Nieto came to Ohio State in 2005 to become program coordinator for Women’s Student Services in the Multicultural Center. She spent the next 10 years advancing her career and education, eventually earning a doctorate in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies in 2015. This led to a leadership role in the ADVANCE office, which promotes the recruitment, retention and advancement of women faculty in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine disciplines at the university — fields traditionally dominated by men.

“The advancement of women’s careers was the central focus of Nicole’s work,” said Mary Juhas, associate vice president in the Office of Research and leader of ADVANCE. “One of her strongest suits is working with men to help them be the best mentors, colleagues and mentees to women at Ohio State.”

Nieto has recently taken another step on her leadership path in her new role as assistant vice provost in the Office of Academic Affairs. Learn more about Dr. Nicole Nieto's journey.

Hearty congratulations, Dr. Nieto!
