On July 1, 2017, Audrey Taylor, CEO and founder of netlogx became President of Women & Hi Tech (W&HT) for 2017-2018. Her experience of running netlogx for the last 19 years plus serving W&HT as vice president for 2016-2017 and treasurer for 2014-2016 will provide the key skills for her to be a success in this role. W&HT was established in July 1999 with the help of Joyce Gustafson of Eli Lilly and was created to address the needs of women in STEM education, careers and industries. Today, there are over 200 members and more than 30 corporate sponsors.
“Women & Hi Tech is one of the largest and fastest growing Indiana organizations,” said Audrey Taylor. The key goals for 2017-18 are to empower women, make Indiana business stronger and close the skilled STEM workers gap. Our all-volunteer board has professionals and outstanding women in every STEM field and I look forward to working with the Board and all our supporters to accelerate progress and achieve our ambitious goals.
Recently, Audrey had the privilege of facilitating the new board orientation and host a meet and greet. She conducted a team building activity utilizing an assessment called the Core Values Index (CVI). “The Core Values Index™ (CVI™) is the only assessment that characterizes and quantifies what Abraham Maslow called the unchanging innate nature of a person that inscribes where a person can make their highest and most productive contribution to the world. Because of this we have the only human assessment process that provides 94% repeat score reliability, year over year. Other assessments typically provide reliability between 60% and 80%. These numbers attest to the fact that we are capturing the innate unchanging nature of people.”
The new board was intrigued and pleased to learn about their results and how they can work more efficiently with fellow board members as well as colleagues and family members.
