Women & Hi Tech has been positively impacting girls and women in STEM in Indiana for twenty years. In this milestone year, Women & Hi Tech is seeking candidates for open positions on its Board of Directors who can help fulfill the mission of changing the landscape of women represented in STEM to be equally inclusive to all through providing mentoring, education, networking and professional development, while recognizing and supporting girls and women in STEM.
The Nomination Committee is seeking female and male candidates for four positions: 1) K-12 Outreach Director, 2) Leading Light Awards Director, 3) Corporate Engagement Director and 4) Community Outreach Director (a new position). Women & Hi Tech is run by an all-volunteer, working Board of Directors and are looking for candidates who are actively engaged with the organization, and will bring wisdom, experience, effectiveness, candor, and creative thinking to the organization. We don’t take the term “working board” lightly. At any given time, a Director is leading her/his own area of responsibility while also contributing to other areas or the organization, including serving on committees, and representing Women & Hi Tech in the community at various events.
The call for nominations closes Monday, April 15, 2019. Multiple nominations from a single candidate are permitted. All nominations will be reviewed by the Nomination Committee. Nominees must be Women & Hi Tech members in good standing at the time of initial voting and must remain in good standing throughout their tenure. New board members take office in July, 2019.
To assist you with nominating candidates, below are descriptions for the open board positions.
