WILMINGTON, Mass., Jan. 13, 2021 -- Energetiq Technology, a world leader in high brightness broadband light sources, is celebrating the recognition of its CEO Debbie Gustafson in the 2021 SPIE Women in Optics Planner.

Each year since 2005 SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has produced the Women in Optics Planner, highlighting women making a difference through their work and contributions to the fields of science, optics, and engineering. Every person included in the SPIE planner offers a dynamic role model for other women and girls interested in STEM fields; together they serve as exciting examples of the myriad opportunities available in science and science-related professions.

Debbie is a passionate business leader who strives to create a diverse and equitable working environment where all can succeed. Debbie stated: “It is an honor to be included in the 2021 planner among so many other inspiring women. While studying mechanical engineering in college, I was one of three women in the class of 35 students. I believe it is our responsibility to be trailblazers, motivating the next generation of women to enter STEM fields. I am passionate about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and I believe that building a diverse team is key to finding the creative solutions and new product ideas that will push us into a new frontier of optics and photonics.”
