Women & Hi Tech aims to change the landscape of women represented in STEM and STEM careers to be equally inclusive to all. They work to connect female STEM professionals with each other and our local communities.

I recently attended the organization’s 20th Anniversary celebration. I felt so grand dining at Audrey’s table.

The evening gala included eloquent speakers and a presentation highlighting all Women & Hi Tech members from inception to the present day.

Our own outreach consultant, Wendy Maple, designed the presentation. Lauryn Andrews, another netlogx consultant, supported the activities and order of events. Her efforts did not go unnoticed, as the evening flew by without a hitch!

Those in the audience included award recipients, founding members, and representatives from the city of Indianapolis as well as the state of Indiana. It was a night to remember, one in which netlogx shined.

Angela B. Freeman, Women & Hi Tech President and the master of ceremonies, had us laughing, crying, and cheering throughout the night. Her blog post highlights the evening’s activities and the good work Women and Hi Tech does for the community of women (and men) in support of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and career paths.

I highly recommend getting involved in this organization. As we promote women’s STEM capabilities, we can be sought out as STEM contributors in the workforce with regularity and consistency. With STEM diversity in the workforce, companies will be able to innovate and do things better than ever before!
