High Profile Speakers - Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane
March 21, 2019
The 2018 midterm elections saw a record number of candidates with STEM backgrounds run for federal, state, and local positions. With a strong pharmaceutical background, Raleigh’s mayor, Nancy McFarlane, is a proud woman in STEM. In her own words:
“Science plays an important role in policy decisions that affect us all. From the impact of vehicles and roads on the environment to climate effects from building materials to stormwater contaminants – scientific evidence and the scientific process frequently play a role in government decision making. Among the 50 largest cities in the United States, I am proud to be the only mayor with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) background,” said Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane. “STEM skills are essential in our evolving world, and are beneficial to anyone in a leadership position. I look forward to meeting with Triangle Women in STEM.”
