Olga Stewart, P.E., PMP, (Alaska) was nominated for Alaska Engineer of the Year by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Olga's nomination for the statewide title comes after being named Greatland SWE's Engineer of the Year. She is one of five engineers nominated by professional engineering organizations across Alaska, all of whom will vie for the title of Alaska Engineer of the Year at the National Engineers Week Anchorage Banquet in Anchorage on February 26, 2022 at 6 p.m.

Olga is a Senior Environmental Engineer based in Alaska with more than 13 years of experience focused on site characterization of contaminated sites; conceptual site model development and refinement; and site cleanup under the requirements of CERCLA, RCRA, and State of Alaska regulations. Her recent work includes large-scale site characterization at former WWII and Cold War military facilities at Atka Island and Great Sitkin Island in the Aleutians, the Aniak White Alice Communications Station, Federal Aviation Administration navigational aid stations, and the Whitter Fuel Depot. She has compiled and analyzed large historical data sets from several sites on Kodiak Island to evaluate site conditions and remedies.

A member of SWE since 2002, Olga joined as a student and has been active in the organization since her move to Alaska. She served as president from 2017 to 2020. Olga was nominated for this award by her peers. Of her nomination, Olga says, "For 70 years, SWE has had a mission, vision, and core values that align with mine, including giving a voice to women, embracing inclusivity, working toward equity, and supporting each other. I'm proud to represent SWE as their Alaska Engineer of the Year nominee, and I'm proud to join a long line of women who actively support the community."

SWE is a nonprofit educational service organization of professional engineers and engineering students dedicated to the advancement of women in the engineering profession. The Greatland Section is the only professional section in Alaska, with members spread throughout the state. The Section first met in 1989 and continues to meet monthly to network, learn, address society business, grow, and support each other.
