The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive, RTP Apr 21 6:00 pm - Apr 21 8:00 pm


Here in RTP, many of the top fields like IT and engineering have long been considered male roles, however, there is a growing trend of women moving in and excelling in these jobs. At April’s RTP 180, we’ll hear from females across the Triangle that are proving the stereotypes wrong in the often male dominated industry of technology. Join us as we celebrate these women making waves in our community!

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At “RTP 180°,” speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. The show kicks off at 6pm, but our doors are open beforehand for anyone that would like to come early.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180 and we always livestream from our YouTube channel over at Afterwards, professionally edited video segments of our speakers will be posted, in case you missed the livestream!
