The Northridge Group’s Therese Fauerbach Speaks at the 2020 Cathy Coughlin STEM Scholars Virtual Celebration Event

Northridge’s CEO, Therese Fauerbach, recently attended the 2020 Cathy Coughlin STEM Scholars Virtual Celebration Event hosted by Northwestern University’s Susan Corwith. At this event, Therese led a panel discussion and Q&A with Phyllis Lockett, encouraging and motivating young women to advance their skill development in STEM areas. Therese and Phyllis are both visionary leaders in business, and without them, this program could not be possible.

The Cathy Coughlin STEM Scholars program was established in honor of Cathy M. Coughlin, a Northwestern graduate and former member of the Board of Trustees. Coughlin’s legacy of success, grounded in hard work and a passion for learning, inspired her friends, family, and others to create a program in her honor that focuses on the talent development of young women. She pursued excellence in everything she did, set high expectations for herself and others, and always believed there was a way to solve a problem. She was vocal about women having equal opportunities within corporate leadership and encouraged young women to set and achieve goals. Given this commitment, it is only fitting that her legacy includes the Cathy Coughlin STEM Scholars.

Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development (CTD) recognizes exceptional female middle-school students as scholarship recipients. These young women participate in CTD’s fast-paced, academic summer program. Through participation in CTD’s enrichment and accelerated programming, Cathy Coughlin Scholars have had the chance to work with others who have similar interests and abilities, learn from experts, and advance their talent development in STEM areas.
