Prof. Grant has been a lifelong advocate for broadening participation, promotion and retention of men and women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. She has served as a mentor and role model for women, particularly women from underrepresented groups, in engineering from students to faculty and has been recognized widely for her mentoring efforts. A prolific speaker nationally and internationally, she also engages in career coaching, and professional development workshops.

Grant’s awards for mentoring activities include the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring, an award established by the White House in 1995, the AAAS Mentoring Award, and the Women in Engineering Pro-Active Network (WEPAN) Bevlee A. Watford Inclusive Excellence Award, which honors individuals or groups who actively and creatively support the success of women of color in engineering at the undergraduate, graduate, faculty, and/or administrative levels.

Prof. Grant is a Fellow, Life Member and the 2022 President of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE); a global organization of 60,000+ members in 110 countries. She previously served the AIChE as a member of the Board of Directors, Chemical Technology Operating Council (CTOC), Environmental Division, National Awards and Nominating Committees, and the Henry & Melinda Brown Endowment Steering Committee. She also served as the Chair of the Minority Affairs Committee.
