According to the ACS Awards Office, Hayes will receive the award "for her extensive service to the society at all levels and her pioneering efforts in identifying the contributions to chemistry of individuals from underrepresented groups." For the past 10 years, Hayes has codirected Project Inclusion (PI), which has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Chemical Heritage Foundation, in an attempt to attract underrepresented students to chemistry. PI focuses attention on the chemical contributions of women; the physically challenged; and various ethnic, racial, and cultural groups.
