Through Tesoro’s career she had created over 125 patents. She has served as a scientist and received awards for her contribution to the field of Chemistry, educated students in her field at MIT and Polytechnic University, and held the role as a columnist in Polymer News. During her life,” Tesoro was a member of three National Research Council committees-on fire safety of polymeric materials, fire retardant clothing, and toxicity hazards. She also served a term as President of the Fiber Society in which she was a founding member”(http://www.bookrags.com/biography/giuliana-cavaglieri-tesoro-woc/).” The Fiber Society’s mission is the advancement of scientific knowledge pertaining to fibers, fiber based products, and fibrous materials”(http://fs.tx.ncsu.edu/Intro.html). It is undeniable the impact that she has on the world through her work in the field of Chemistry. In an article from MIT on Inventors, it is stated that “She made advances in textile processing and organic compounds that have improved textile performance for everyday consumers as well as for manufacturing systems. “Among her many innovations, Tesoro developed flame-resistant fibers, designed ways to prevent static accumulation in synthetic fibers, and created improved permanent press properties for textiles”(http://web.mit.edu/invent/iow/tesoro.html). What is most significant is her role and impact on future generations of women. She has shown generations of women that they can achieve success in a role dominated by men. “By the end of the 20th century, women by the thousands have achieved advanced degrees in all the technical fields. It took 188 years for American women to get the vote; in the last 15 years American women earned over 15,000 Ph.D.s in technical fields”(http://www.astr.ua.edu/4000WS/newintro.html). Women like Giuliana have paved the way for women in science to flourish and they laid the framework for their success. Giuliana Tesoro passed away on September 29, 2002 in her neighborhood of Dobbs Ferry, NY.
