I’d like to thank the SEMI Foundation for the Excellence in Achievement Award, and I’m honored to be recognized alongside previous recipients who have demonstrated a steadfast commitment to advancing DE&I initiatives. As Cadence continues to reaffirm its dedication to DE&I initiatives internally and among the community, I look forward to working on new collaborations that focus on giving back and making a difference.”
