Karen Matthys
Executive Director for external partners at the Stanford Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering
Matthys herself started off in a STEM field, and earned a BS in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia. But like many women, she left STEM. She earned an MBA from Stanford University, and worked at Apple and Cellular One in senior marketing roles before moving on to serve as a principal at Indigo Partners, a management-consulting firm.
As an executive director for ICME at Stanford, Matthys is promoting the next event, the fellowships, and working on the 30by30 campaign, which has a goal of increasing to 30% the women in computer science and engineering roles at all levels of organizations by the year 2030.
