Our sponsorship levels seek to celebrate courageous, modern-day women in STEM with strong ties to North Carolina. Our motto “Lead, Follow or Get out of the Way” is a nod to determined women everywhere following their passion and making strides in careers that are traditionally under-represented by women. We are thankful that these women serve as role models to the next generation, and we are proud to tout their accomplishments.
In addition to the benefits listed under each level, each sponsor will receive our undying love and gratitude!
We also love to promote our sponsors on social media!
