Ingeborg Hegemann, former Chair of BSC Group’s Board of Directors and now a Senior Consultant, has been inducted to the Worcester Business Journal‘s Hall of Fame. The award recognizes Ingeborg’s significant contributions to ecological science, community service, and her colleagues here at BSC Group.
Through her work on numerous Department of Environmental Protection advisory boards and committees, Ingeborg has helped to shape ecological regulation in Massachusetts for stormwater management as well as wetlands and riverfront protection. Her project work has involved many of the most notable efforts in Central Massachusetts.
Ingeborg reflected on her work, “It’s a wonderful career. I drive around Massachusetts and see evidence of my work all over. I remember monitoring the construction of Route 146 to the Mass Pike to minimize impact on the Blackstone River.”
Internally, BSC is grateful for her contributions to our firm’s growth in Central Massachusetts, as well as her example of leadership for our team. As a trailblazer for women in science, Ingeborg has served as a mentor to many of our colleagues at BSC.
Lee Curtis, BSC Group Vice President and Principal for the firm’s Worcester Business Unit, said, “Ingeborg’s leadership and reputation attracted women to the industry. Before formal policies and practices were in place, Ingeborg mentored and promoted women at BSC and through external organizations and volunteer work.”
Ingeborg was one of just four Worcester-area business leaders to be recognized with the Hall of Fame award this year, and becomes one of just 17 inductees since the program’s beginning. Learn more by reading the Worcester Business Journal article.
