Three women within the 2018 Women in Technology class will receive the distinction of “Advocate.” Robyn Brown of Bold Idea, Juliet Odima of S.T.E.A.M. Achievers, and Janell Straach of The University of Texas at Dallas have led with missional intent to advocate for technology fields, ensuring that future generations, and especially women, have access to tools and support required to succeed.

These 26 honorees hail from large public entities, like Kimberly-Clark Corporation and FedEx, to smart upstarts that meet a need, like ShearShare, Inc., spanning across an array of industries vital to North Texas. The challenges presented in these vastly different companies are met equally by diverse leadership styles and unique approaches to problem-solving.
