Founder and Executive Director, hEr VOLUTION

Doina Oncel founded the award-winning hEr VOLUTION to encourage girls and young women, especially those in underserved communities, to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – and to advocate for more inclusion within those industries. She estimates almost 3,000 youth have participated in hEr VOLUTION’s programs, camps and workshops, taught by industry professionals through partnerships with corporations such as Shopify, Salesforce, Citrix and Checkout 51. Oncel founded hEr VOLUTION to help women triumph over barriers similar to those she experienced as an immigrant who overcame homelessness and domestic violence.
