Last week, we covered an article from D Magazine featuring the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas’ STEM Center of Excellence. D Magazine also features Dallas’ female STEM leaders and innovators that are trailblazing a path for young STEM girls in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We encourage you to read the full article here.
The goal of D CEO’s Women Leading Tech and Innovation initiative is to showcase executive women paving paths in critical roles in STEM across Dallas-Fort Worth, elevate the work of the business community in building the pipeline, and demonstrate the need for more diversity in these senior roles.

Stacey Marx’s story is proof that anything is possible for women in tech. As a child, she couldn’t imagine going to a big city, much less living and working in one. Marx grew up in a small midwestern farming town where she practiced public speaking in a barn, standing on a ladder, and talking to cows. Her parents’ strict “no TV” rules fueled her love of literature and thirst for knowledge. In a town where everyone knew everything, Marx quickly learned how to get along with all types of personalities and the importance of relationships. She considers relationships and a strong personal network keys to career success and happiness. Her focus on people and passion for problem solving have helped propel her into successful careers in both finance and sales. She now leads a team of thousands of business professionals who support 95% of AT&T’s business customers nationwide.
BravoTECH salutes its own women in technology. It takes a talented team of people to make a company successful, and these women are a critical part of the Bravo team that has been recognized multiple times by the INC. 500/5000 and Dallas 100. BravoTECH also gives back to the community through involvement with technology organizations; mentoring through UTD and Technology Ball, the company’s own golf tournament raising funds for STEM education; and of course the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas. Valerie Freeman, CEO of BravoTECH, was a Girl Scout, former board chair of the GSNETX, and former Girl Scout Woman of Distinction awardee. BravoTECH, celebrating its 25th Anniversary, is thrilled to shoot this photo at the amazing Girl Scout STEM Center of Excellence in Dallas.
