Women & Hi Tech is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in Indianapolis, IN in 1999 by a female scientist at Eli Lilly and a female academician at Indiana University. For over 20 years, Women & Hi Tech has sought to further its mission to “change the landscape of women represented in STEM to be equally inclusive to all” by providing mentoring, education, networking, and professional development opportunities, while recognizing and supporting girls and women in STEM in Indiana. Women & Hi Tech is seeking candidates for open positions on its Board of Directors to help further its mission.
The Women & Hi Tech Nomination Committee is seeking female and male candidates, particularly diverse candidates, for our all-volunteer, working Board of Directors for the following three positions (click the title of the position to see a full description of the position):
Preferred candidates 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. All Women & Hi Tech Board of Directors are expected to represent the organization in the community. At any given time, a Women & Hi Tech Director will also be responsible for leading her/his own area of responsibility and/or a committee, while also contributing to other areas of the organization, including serving on other committees.
Multiple nominations for different open positions 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 will take office July 1, 2020.
