Dear Women & Hi Tech Members, Sponsors, Partners, and Friends,
I hope this message finds you all doing well and spending some quality time with loved ones. This is the time of year to step back and reflect on the many blessings, people, and great things happening around you.
As I think about Women & Hi Tech’s 20th Anniversary year, I am proud and grateful of all the accomplishments of our organization. This has been a BIG year for Women & Hi Tech, from our Executive Women’s Forums to the Spring Networking Event at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Passport to Hi Tech, Ignite Your Superpower, our fabulous 20th Anniversary Event, Celebrating Our Past and Investing in Our Future, while giving over $30,000 in scholarships and grants to extremely deserving young ladies and women pursuing STEM degrees in Indiana. These events were followed by the Fall Retreat in French Lick, our 2nd Annual male allies event, OperationALLTM – Lead Like an Ally, as well as countless other womens’, girls’, and equity and diversity events our Board of Directors and members support regularly by attending, volunteering, presenting, and speaking on panels. The accomplishments of Women & Hi Tech in advancing our mission of changing the landscape of women represented in STEM to be equally inclusive to all is nothing short of amazing!
All of this is only possible because of the hundreds of passionate and enthusiastic women and men that volunteer their time and talents at our events and programs each year. In addition, we are so thankful for our dedicated annual corporate, event, and scholarship/grant sponsors who support Women & Hi Tech and our mission. To our members, volunteers, sponsors, and my fellow Board Members, THANK YOU for all you do and for continuing to support and believe in Women & Hi Tech’s mission. Because of all of you, Women & Hi Tech is an organization that continues to thrive and make a positive impact on equity and inclusion in the STEM fields here in Indiana.
In this eleventh edition of “Grown from STEM,” Women & Hi Tech would like to introduce you to Carol Ganz, the Board of Directors’ Membership Administrator and Active Emeritus Member, Rajinder Heir. Carol and Rajinder are both in the technology field, but took very different paths to get there. Both of these women have made major career successes, including significant philanthropic contributions at Women & Hi Tech, to advance equity and inclusion of women in the technology field. Please read more about Carol and Rajinder and how their backgrounds, technical aptitude, and passion for equity and inclusion inspires those around them and fuels their support and involvement in Women & Hi Tech.
