Amber Czajkowski, a thin-film engineer at Edmund Optics, was one of the optical engineers highlighted in the SPIE 2013 Women in Optics Planner.

Since 2005 the Women in Optics Planner has featured women in the fields of science and engineering, promoting personal and professional growth for women, and encouraging young women to choose optics as a career.

The Women in Optics Planner has grown to be a tool for introducing girls and young women to the possibilities of careers in all sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The increasing demand for the planner has demonstrated a growing interest in learning about women in the sciences and the need for female role models in technical fields.

'I am so honoured to be included in this impressive group of enormously talented and successful women engineers and scientists,' said Czajkowski. 'I was extremely lucky to grow up in an atmosphere where my aptitude in both science and mathematics was not only recognised and nurtured at a young age, but also mentored throughout my university studies.'
