The CT Convergence Institute is proud to announce former YIIP Scholar Aundrya Montgomery was recently selected as a finalist for the Women of Innovation Program. Women of Innovation 2020 is a collaboration between the Connecticut Technology Council and the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc. The program recognizes women innovators, role models, and leaders in science and technology, including outstanding young women at the high school and collegiate levels pursuing technology professions.
Aundrya was recognized in the Community Innovation and Leadership category and was handpicked by a panel of judges from over 150 nominations. She is currently the Director of Community Outreach of the Urban League of Greater Hartford Young Professionals where she empowers and encourages the inner city youth of Hartford to pursue S.T.E.A.M. careers. Aundrya attributes the success of her Urban League career to her participation in the YIIP Program here at The CT Convergence Institute. While in the program, her dream developed to build on her passion for motivating young men and women of color to believe that any dream is achievable with hard work and effort.
