When she established the Woman of the Year award at Missouri S&T, Cindy Tang, a 1985 economics graduate, wanted to recognize female faculty who have improved the campus environment for women. So far, 23 female faculty members have been recognized for their accomplishments and service to the university. 

Tang is the founder and former chair of Insight Industries Inc. Now known as Avista, Insight was started as an entrepreneurial software engineering consulting firm in 1987. Tang sold and left the company, which is now one of the largest software engineering businesses in Wisconsin.
