Our Purpose

Organizations thrive with greater gender diversity — enjoying greater productivity, less volatility, improved employee and customer satisfaction, and higher financial returns. Yet women are often underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. The Triangle is nationally recognized for its high value STEM workforce. This makes the Triangle well positioned to take advantage of a strategic opportunity to differentiate our region for women in STEM. With distinctive programs promoting inclusion and pathways to success, we aim to recruit, retain, and advance women in STEM fields in the Triangle.

Triangle Women in STEM is hosting our 5th (Virtual) Summer Intern Event on Thursday, June 17th from 6:00 - 7:15 pm.  


We are honored to have Gina Loften, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Microsoft U.S., serve as our keynote.  Gina will be speaking from 6:00 - 6:45 pm. Come and learn from Gina as she discusses her own career path, risks worth taking, personal branding, best professional practices, and seeking mentorship.  She will also be available for Q&A at the end of her presentation.  


Following the keynote, we are offering breakout sessions from 6:45 - 7:15 pm.  Zoom technology now allows participants to select their breakout room.  


Each breakout room will have 2 - 3 early professionals ready to describe their current roles, answer participant questions, and give advice on the transition from college to career.  


The breakout rooms that will be available are: 

Financial Technology (Fintech) & Insurance 
Computer Systems
Environmental Science 
Civil Engineering 
Pursuing a PhD

quote: "Women's participation in STEM, especially in medicine, is crucial because our patients are male, female, and non-binary; why shouldn't their doctors reflect that?"
