After careful review of all the exceptional nominees, SWEP GP selected Jennifer Gresh with Duffield Associates as our 2021 Touchstone Award recipient. Ms. Gresh is a recognized leader as a professional geologist and environmental consultant. Jennifer is the Philadelphia Division Director at Duffield Associates where she started the Philadelphia office in 2008 with two employees and has since grown the office to 13 employees. Mentorship is vitally important to Ms. Gresh. She not only leads through example but embraces her role as a mentor, especially for young women, at Duffield Associates and in her community. Jen has shared her passion and commitment to the advancement of women in the environmental field through her involvement in the Owl-to-Owl Mentor program at her alma matter, Temple University, where she took on the role of President of the Alumni Board for the College of Science and Technology. The fact that Jen was selected to give the commencement speech to the College of Science and Technology’s 2019 graduating class is a reflection and acknowledgement of her ability to connect and inspire young people entering the profession with her passion and vision.
