Ajmera is President and CEO of the Society for Science & the Public and Publisher of Science News. NSB is recognizing Ajmera for "inspiring generations of young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators through the Society for Science & the Public, a non-profit organization best known for its world class science research competitions, award winning science journalism, and expansive outreach and equity programs."

Under her leadership, the Society is also investing $11 million in STEM outreach and equity programming, with a goal of ensuring that every young person with a passion for STEM has an opportunity to pursue that passion. Under her leadership as Publisher, the Society was able to save its flagship magazine, Science News, an independent source of science journalism since 1921. Ajmera achieved this by creating a new education pillar for the magazine, expanding access of Science News to 5,000 high schools across the country. "Public service has always been a life-long passion of mine, from the time I launched the Global Fund for Children to more recently launching a suite of outreach and equity programs at the Society for Science & the Public," said Maya Ajmera, President and CEO of the Society for Science & the Public and Publisher of Science News. "I'm honored to follow in the footsteps of Jane Goodall, Alan Alda and Ira Flatow."
