The ELA is a partnership among leading engineering and science-based organizations that provides high quality leadership training. For the past 10 years, the ELA has successfully hosted an interdisciplinary leadership conference for young professionals, providing advanced training in topics such as management, personal branding, social styles, problem solving, presentation skills, and global diversity.
Applicants with less than eight years of industry experience were required to submit a resume, answer essay questions related to leadership, and submit a letter of nomination from an ACI Member. The winners were reviewed and selected by a task group appointed by the ACI Membership Committee.
Robertson is also a two time ACI Fellowship winner and has received the ACI Young Member Award.
