Emerging Leader

The ACEC/MN Emerging Leader Award was developed to recognize an ACEC/MN member still in the early stages of their career who has already contributed significantly to the association.

The 2020 Emerging Leader Award was awarded to Lauren Piepho of HGA (pictured right). This award was created to recognize an ACEC member still in the early stages of their career who has already contributed significantly to the association and the profession. Lauren has been very active in MNSEA activities, leading the Structural Engagement & Equity Committee (SE3), partnering with the ACEC/MN Workforce Development Committee on the EDI Book Club event series. She has spent countless hours planning events, leading meetings, and encouraging young engineers to become active leaders within our industry.
