2018 Mentor Me! Leading Light Award

Jan Allen, Senior Global Manager, Requirements Engineering and Analysis, Roche

Jan has been involved in supporting women in engineering and STEM nearly her entire career. She has spent the past 20 years in various leadership positions at Roche, where her impact is evident both internally and in the community.
Through fostering an expansive network, Jan has provided her mentees with access to career development resources that connect them with educational opportunities and leaders in relevant areas. Many women's careers would have been significantly more difficult without Jan’s critical thinking, creativity, and feedback. She creates opportunities for them to develop and network while proactively mentoring and coaching them.
As a STEM outreach advocate, she has been a major contributor in increasing Roche's support and presence in the community. And because she believes strongly in paying it forward, her influence has greatly impacted her mentees who, themselves, go on to become strong mentors in our community.
In addition to her mentees, Jan also helps young girls understand that a career in STEM means they can support themselves, see the world, and help others. She has inspired hundreds of young girls in our community to become engineers and scientists, and to chase their dreams. Her community outreach includes IUPUI’s Power Camp, volunteering with Pike Township schools, and supporting programs like Passport to Hi-Tech and Ignite Your Superpower!.
Jan recently retired from Roche and was elected to the Board of Directors for Women & Hi Tech as its new K-12 Outreach Director.
