Encouraging women to pursue careers in STEM is a passion for many of our team members. That’s why we’re proud to partner with The Tech Interactive to sponsor the “Young Women at the Tech” luncheon on Friday, May 13 at the Santa Clara Marriot. 

President & CEO of The Tech, Katrina Stevens, and Vice President of Engineering at LinkedIn, Erica Lockheimer, will talk to attendees about finding your purpose.

Watry Design’s Anita Gupta, SE; Shruti Namjoshi, AIA; Mahal Antiporda, Meghana Prabhune, Ziwei Guo and Chelzea Furtado will also be on hand to help female-identifying and gender-expansive teens in high school learn more about STEM careers.
